NEW DATE ANNOUNCED!


(this event was originally postoponed in solidarity with UCL staff strike action)

Which are the UK's main pollinators and why are they important? Thursday 3rd May @ 6pm

The UCL Conservation Society is hosting a Pollinators Event to discuss the importance of these animals and the challenges they face in today's world. Prof Dave Goulson (University of Sussex), Richard Walton (UCL) and Bronwen Hopkins (UCL Beekeeping Society) will be joining us to talk all things insect!

Professor Dave Goulson is the founder of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, an author and scientist specialising in ecology, behaviour and conservation of pollinators. Find out more here: http://www.sussex.ac.uk/lifesci/goulsonlab/

Richard Walton is a PhD researcher at UCL focusing on plant and pollinator relationships in ponds. Find out more about Richard's research here: http://www.geog.ucl.ac.uk/people/research-students/richard-walton

Bronwen Hopkins is the founder and president of UCL Beekeeping Society, who not only bring beekeepers together, but are also focused on the issues of urban beekeeping, and are looking at ways to improve the urban habitat for our urban bees.

Please note: we have added a small fee to this event. This money will be going towards travel costs for our speakers who are based outside of London, and anything left over will help us to put on more events in the future. The cost helps us to assure our events are attended and to help us continue to develop events. If you would like to attend but the cost is prohibitive for you, please email us and we will do what we can to help you. We would like our events to be as inclusive as possible, email us if you have any queries: uclconservationgroup@live.ucl.ac.uk
