The subject of hunting and its impact on wildlife and conservation inspires a range of opinions and (often) extreme emotions. Rarely are both sides of the argument discussed in public.

On one side of the argument are nature protectionists who believe passionately that killing for sport is not only incompatible with the preservation of wildlife but is directly responsible for the decline of certain species.

On the other side are the sport hunters who believe equally passionately that field sports and wildlife management are an essential part of nature conservation.

Panellists will include Chris Packham, Patron of World Land Trust, and Bill Oddie, a WLT Ambassador and Council Member. Mark Avery, another WLT Council member,  Andrew Gilruth, Director of Membership and Communications at the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, and James Barrington, animal welfare consultant.

Controversial Conservation 2014 with Chris Packham is at the Royal Society, London on 2 September 2014, 7pm.
