Let’s talk about BEAVER
19th October - 2pm, Hastings Museum & Art Gallery with Dr. Sam Gandy
Tickets are £10 - kids come free (Under 18s) and £5 from each ticket sale will go straight to the River Otter Beaver Trial organised by the Devon Wildlife Trust.
Join us in the beautiful Durbar Hall at Hastings Museum & Art Gallery for talk by Sam Gandy about the re-introduction of beavers to the UK.
After the talking, we'll be inviting attendees to join us for a walk through Bohemia Woods. The Return of Beavers to The UK - and why this should be celebrated!
The implications of beaver reintroduction to biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
Sam Gandy has a PhD in ecological science from the University of Aberdeen and an MRes in entomology from Imperial College London. He has a lifelong interest in nature and wildlife and has been fortunate enough to conduct field research in various parts of the world including the UK, Kefalonia, Almeria, Texas, the Peruvian Amazon, Vietnam and Ethiopia. He has a keen interest in beavers and their overdue introduction to the UK, and was media volunteer for the Scottish Wild Beaver Group, effectively a PR agent for Scotland's beavers.
I’ll also be doing a short ‘B’ Talk about Hastings’ own beaver fanatic ‘Grey Owl.’
The Explorers Club is a local, DIY educational outfit that has been operating out of living rooms all over Hastings and St. Leonards since 2012.
