Avoiding Boris’s “newt-counting delays” to build back green

August 12, 2020

Event: Thursday 6 August, 12:30–13:15

Inspired by Boris, we are talking all things newt. Have you been beset by ‘newt-counting delays’? Or do you find amphibians have a ‘mi-newt’ (sorry) effect on your progress? We’ll spare you the natural history lecture (fascinating though newts are) and dig a little deeper into new survey techniques using environmental DNA, understanding the new licensing policies for great crested newts, and how to decide on the best approach for your site.

Your August guide is Steph Wray, one of the directors of RSK Biocensus and the chair of CIEEM’s Strategic Policy Panel. Steph has 25 years’ experience in helping developers to do more than just stay on the right side of wildlife law. She cares so you don’t have to – but, after 30 minutes of talking to her, you probably will care too.
