This talk will outline how WWT tried to include the many different people who have a part to play in the conservation of the Bewick's Swan. A key challenge to save a species is to stimulate and coordinate the activities of the species experts, often spread over many countries. A bigger problem is to engage others, hunters, farmers, authorities who also have a part to play. 'Flight of the Swans'-a paramotor expedition from Arctic Russia to the UK was WWT's novel approach to achieve this.

This event is organised by the Forest of Dean Group of the GWT.
