Conserving the little things that run the world – insects!

June 15, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm



In this talk, Professor Ed Tuner, Curator of Insects at the Museum of Zoology in Cambridge, will discuss why insects are important and what can be done to help protect them.

More on Ed’s work :

“In the UK, I work with the BCN Wildlife Trust to investigate the role of habitat management in supporting insect diversity on chalk grassland reserves. We are particularly interested in understanding how conservation management can be tailored to benefit threatened butterfly species, such as the Duke of Burgundy, in the face of future climate change.”

This is an in-person talk hosted by Wandlebury Country Park. Please meet at the Stable Rooms. Booking required: please book via the Eventbrite link:
