On Thursday 18th February, over 260 guests attended an evening of conversation with Salmon & Trout Conservation VP, Feargal Sharkey. The first in a new series from Salmon and Trout Conservation (S&TC) in which host Matthew Wright seeks to untangle the people and issues associated with wild fish conservation.
Nick Measham, CEO of S&TC, said: “The Untangled Talks provide a great opportunity for guests to hear from some of the key people invested in wild fish conservation. Open to everyone, the session with Feargal was the first in a series of topical discussions. I am thrilled to announce that our next guest will be wildlife photographer and filmmaker Jack Perks on Thursday 11th March.”
Hosted online, attendees enjoyed a dynamic conversation which explored the risks facing our water environments and the species which inhabit them including over-abstraction and pollution.
Matthew Wright, S&TC VP and host of the Untangled Talks, said: “A fascinating and revealing conversation where the one time punk rocker reveals not only a deep understanding of the many issues facing salmon and trout conservation but also explains his tactics for change – essential listening for anyone who cares about the environment”
