The Royal Society in London was the venue for ‘Controversial Conservation’, a series of presentations on contentious issues brought together by the World Land Trust. In line with its mission to encourage debate on the more difficult environmental topics, this event was sponsored by The Sibthorp Trust on 14th October 2013.

Human-animal conflict (particularly badgers in the UK and tigers in India), persecution of protected species and the impact of domestic and feral cats on wildlife were among the issues raised, and many other subjects arose as a result, including: allowing species extinction, the trade in endangered species, the cause of imprisoned environmental activists and the lifting of the fox hunting ban.
