World Heritage Autumn Webinar # 4 – East Coast Flyway

December 13, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0

£5.00 – £15.00

Number 4 in a series of 4 webinar talks, on the UK’s World Heritage Tentative List – Wednesday 13th December 2023, 7pm to 8pm, on Zoom.

Site: East Coast Flyway: the area put forward in the Tentative List application process covered 21 Special Protection Areas, between the Humber and the Thames Estuary. The largest sites are the Wash, Humber Estuaries and the Thames Estuary, but also includes much of the land between along the north Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex Coast. These support globally important populations of migratory birds such knot and bar-tailed godwit and have been put forward under criterion X.

Speaker: Jeff Kew grew up on the Norfolk Coast and after obtaining a Forestry Degree and working for the Forestry Commission and Local Government joined the RSPB in 1995. He has worked in a number roles in RSPB from leading regional conservation work to leading major collaborative habitat restoration projects, such as working with Crossrail to restore Wallasea Island in Essex.  Since 2020 Jeff has been working part time and leading the RSPB’s East Coast Wetland Programme. One of the objectives of the Programme is to talk more about the global importance of the wetlands in the context of East Atlantic Flyway, the superhighway for migratory waterbirds from the Arctic down to Africa, so when the Tentative List went live Jeff led the process of working with a number of other partners to submit an application.
