The Case for & Against Large Predator Reintroductions to Ireland

Join big cat conservationist and livestock farmer Dr Jonny Hanson for an electrifying yet balanced look at the issue of large predator reintroductions to rewild landscapes, one of the most novel yet controversial conservation issues of our time. Covering both history and natural history, Jonny explores the varied dimensions, feasibility and ethics of reintroducing wolves, lynxes and brown bears to the island of Ireland, assessing the case for and the case against. 

Pre-recorded at the Ulster Museum, humorous and thought-provoking in equal measure, and featuring live audience polling to enable you to have your say, this talk promises to excite, enthral, and perhaps even enrage.
