TALKS 2021/22

We are delighted to announce that we have a full series of talks lined up for the winter. Until the end of the year they will continue to be offered via Zoom but Covid and venue permitting, we hope to hold some indoor meetings in 2022.

We must offer our APOLOGIES to all those who tried, without success, to access our talk on 5 October. It turns out that under the new system which head office are using, it is important to book in advance and then, on the day of the talk, you should start joining the meeting about 10 - 15 minutes beforehand. If everyone does this, we hope the system will work better in future and that we do not have the problems which occurred last time.

Our next talk will take place via Zoom on:

Tuesday 2 November at 7.30 p.m.

Jack Wooton, Freshwater Ecologist and Eel Specialist, Forth Rivers Trust, will talk about THE FORGOTTEN FISH

Jack has worked in Freshwater Conservation for a number of years now with a particular focus on rare and unloved species. He founded the Forgotten Fish Project which is part of the Forth Rivers Trust that highlights the species which get little attention and even less conservation focus. As well as freshwater, Jack has worked with orangutan and other primates, but is always drawn back to water!

As mentioned above, ideally you should start to link into the meeting in good time and no later than 10 - 15 minutes before the start, as the joining link will be locked once the meeting has started.
