A series of free Darwin Centre Live events at

Saturday 1 May to Sunday 9 May

London is full of urban habitats that act as small wildlife sanctuaries, but the pressure to create new housing is leading to the loss of important ‘brownfield’ sites and may be endangering many species. Join wildlife experts in London Conservation, a series of free Darwin Centre Live events exploring London’s biodiversity, the importance of green roofs and with tips on how to create your own wildlife garden.

Darwin Centre Live in the GlaxoSmithKline Studio at the Natural History Museum is a free programme of informal events where visitors can talk to scientists, hear more about their work at the Museum and around the world and see the fascinating specimens they work with. For further information, please contact the Natural History Museum by calling 020 7942 5000 or visit
