Special Interest Group

Conservation is a diverse industry in which most practitioners specialise in a particular field. Our members can join Special Interest Groups (SIGs). SIGs are run by a convenor with assistance from other interested members.

They meet to organise specialist workshops, symposiums and contribute articles to the National Newsletter. They allow us to continue to develop our expertise by knowledge sharing in our areas of specialisation.

Our SIGs are grouped around location and area of interest, so have a look at the range of groups we offer.
