Member Talk: Finding Urban Nature with David Lindo
Member & Patron Virtual Event
Free, online event - no ticket required
Tuesday 7 September 2021, 19.00-20.00
Join Broadcaster, Writer and Urban Birder, David Lindo as he discusses the importance of urban nature with Head of the Angela Marmont Centre at the Museum, Dr John Tweddle.
Over 80% of the UK population live in urban areas and this is projected to rise to 92% by 2030, leading to larger cities and more challenges for wildlife. Towns and cities are rapidly becoming where most people will experience nature and therefore it is vital that we start celebrating and protecting the UK’s biodiversity.
David and John will discuss how this is possible, the Museum's upcoming Urban Nature Project and their passions behind their love of urban nature. Learn about the biodiversity that is all around us, even in our small back gardens or just outside our bedroom windows. John and David will also help us understand how we can connect with each other and act together to protect our urban nature.
