'Silent Earth: Saving our Insects' a Winter Lecture with Dave Goulson

March 2nd 2023

Oxford Botanic Garden and Arboretum's Winter Lectures are back for 2023 – in this 3rd lecture in the series, join Dave Goulson (Professor of Biology at the University of Sussex, specialising in bee ecology) for a lecture on 'Silent Earth: Saving our Insects'. Dave founded the Bumblebee Conservation Trust in 2006.

Prof. Goulson's talk 'will explore the world of insects, showcasing how vital, fascinating and weirdly wonderful they are. He'll explore their role as food, pollinators and pest controllers, whilst arguing why we should be so deeply concered about their rapid decline. He will explain the many causes of insect decline, and then turn to the solutions of this crisis.'

Thursday 2nd March, 2023
7 pm - 8 pm

(Doors open at 6:40 pm, with the talk starting promptly at 7 pm.)


The talk will be held in person at the Maths Institute, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter and tickets include a complimentary drink after the event.
