Beds, Essex and Herts branch AGM and virtual talk.
A virtual talk on wildlife conservation delivered by Dr Rebecca Nesbit, followed by the regional online AGM meeting.
Dr Nesbit is the author of Tickets for the Ark, which tackles tough choices in wildlife conservation. Using case studies from around the world, the book challenges some of our deeply held views about what the natural world should look like.
She studied butterfly migration for her PhD, then worked for a start-up company training honeybees to detect explosives. Now, Rebecca works in science communication and her projects have ranged from a citizen science flying ant survey to visiting universities around the world with Nobel Prize laureates. Her first popular science book Is That Fish in your Tomato?
explores the environmental and social issues surrounding genetically-modified foods.
The talk will be followed by the AGM. This is a chance for members and non-members to come together to talk to the committee and hear about updates in their activities and finances, and to plan for the year ahead. which is an opportunity for members to come together, dialogue with the committee and get updates on the year's finances and activities as well as plan for the new year. All are welcome to attend the AGM, but only Beds, Essex and Herts branch members will be able to vote.
