Well the conference is over and now its just about gathering thoughts, editing interviews and writing some conclusions. I had a really stimulating and rewarding time over the two days not least through meeting and talking with a whole range of individuals active in the field. I’ll be editing the video clips next week and they should start appearing on the website soon.
The only thing I missed was a more strident summing up, a call to arms perhaps. From a personal perspective it would have been good if someone had been bold enough to point out it was at least partially incumbent on the many of the individuals there to make sure that our wild landscapes are protected for future generations. We will not be forgiven in the future for allowing the current rate of loss to continue much longer.
more thoughts later..
