CLA Game Fair conservation prize winner announced


An aspiring river keeper is the winner of this year’s CLA Game Fair Conservation Saturday Quiz which took place at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on 19 July.

The organisers were inundated with entries matching up species to their habitats. All the correct entries were put into a hat and CLA President Henry Robinson picked out Fishery Management student Arnold Worsop as the lucky winner.

Conservation Saturday aims to encourage land managers and organisations to share their experiences and bring conservation issues to the forefront.

Themed presentations took place throughout the day in the CLA Game Fair Theatre, sponsored by Strutt & Parker, and expert seminars provoked discussions on water, farming, upland and woodland conservation issues.

Mr Worsop, 19, from Sparham, Norfolk said: “I really enjoyed my time at the show and I am delighted to have won this competition, especially after seeing the number of people who took part.

“My father works as a gamekeeper on an estate in Norfolk so a love of the outdoors runs in the family. If we are going to maintain the countryside for future generations to enjoy we must all do our bit towards its conservation.”

CLA President Henry Robinson said: “We are delighted and encouraged that so many people took such a great interest in Conservation Saturday. It was a great opportunity for land managers and organisations to share their experiences and go away enthused about conservation issues.”

Mr Worsop’s prize is a family ticket to next year’s CLA Game Fair.
