Conservation course held at new university

Royal Agricultural University

I spent today at the Royal Agricultural University teaching the “Biodiversity section” of the 3 day course in BASIS certificate in Conservation Management. Many of you will know this establishment as the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, but it has recently gained university status and has changed its name!
There was a great bunch attending the course – Professionals, students and even someone from the island of Jersey! They were all very keen, full of questions and I hope got a lot out of the day. They particularly enjoyed getting out onto the University farm to talk practicalities of conservation and how to successfully integrate it into a modern farming system. I’m sure that such a sparky lot will do just fine when they take the exam - lets hope so!
