The programme is currently funding eight exciting projects, all focused on restoring natural ecological processes, populations and habitats within Europe.

Field sites range from mid-Wales and the Cairngorms over to the Polesia and Georgia.

The ELP projects are keen to explore research opportunities and make connections with University of Cambridge researchers.

The event will feature a short presentation by each of the eight projects, followed by relaxed networking and discussions over drinks and nibbles in the large seminar room.

If you would be interested in attending, please reply to Alison Harvey at ah786@cam.ac.uk 

The long-term future health of biodiversity requires reversing human degradation through creation of landscapes that are extensive, connected and resilient. When exploitative activities end, barriers to recovery are removed, and nature is given time to heal itself, degraded landscapes can recover.

This principle is what lies behind the Endangered Landscapes Programme (ELP), an initiative being set up and managed by the Cambridge Conservation Initiative (of which the University is one of ten partners), which aims to introduce a positive and optimistic agenda for action, reversing biodiversity loss and providing inspiration for a shift in the policy and practice of nature conservation in Europe.
