DTL Conference board welcomes 19th police & Customs Wildlife enforcement Conference 11 October 2007

120 Wildlife Group Representatives To Attend Two-Day Conference At The Villa Marina, 10 & 11 October

More than 120 representatives from some 20 organisations are attending the annual Police and Customs Wildlife Enforcement (PCWE) conference taking place in the Isle of Man this week, it was announced today.

This is the first time the island will play host to the conference which brings together police and customs with government and voluntary bodies that have an interest in wildlife law enforcement.

Richard Brunstrum Chief Constable of the North Wales Police is heading the conference. He says,

“This PCWE conference will give wildlife groups the opportunity to examine key issues and progress current and ongoing legislative matters, as well as to develop news skills through workshops and case studies."

The conference will cover such broad ranging issues as the multi-million pound trafficking in endangered plant industry with a presentation by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITIES) to more local issues such as conversation of the Hen Harrier presented by the Manx Bird Atlas Group.

The Isle of Man Department of Tourism and Leisure actively seeks to attract conferences and meetings to the island with 32 conferences confirmed since 2005 generating more than £3.6 million for the island's economy.

Department of Tourism and Leisure Minister, Adrian Earnshaw says,

“The Isle of Man is fast becoming recognised as a premiere conference destination thanks to our superior facilities and the warm Manx welcome provided by our conference board. We welcome the PCWE conference delegates to our shores and wish them every success for their event.”
