TV’s Ben Garrod launches our online talks series
We are really excited to launch the first online talk in our Wildlife in the Red series! The keynote speech is being given by Professor Ben Garrod – evolutionary biologist, primatologist and broadcaster. In his talk, ‘Saving the world’s wildlife in your backyard’, Ben will introduce you to fascinating animals threatened by extinction, not only exotic species, but those we can find right here in Wessex. And crucially, he’ll outline ways we can all help restore the biodiversity of our planet.
This family-friendly event takes place on Thursday 21 Jan, 7.30-8.30pm. Ben will talk for 45 minutes, then you’ll get chance to ask questions. Sign up here – it’s free. But hurry because places are likely to run out fast!
