In light of the current situation regarding Coronavirus, we have regrettably had to postpone the following talks:

  • Tue, Apr 7th Eleanor Mayhew – Saving Oxford’s Wetland Wildlife
  • Tue, May 5th Dr Nick Isaac – Long-term changes in invertebrate biodiversity: Are we approaching insectageddon?
  • Tue, Jun 2nd Rod d’Ayala – Amphibians Of Oxfordshire
  • Tue, Jul 7th Professor Dieter Helm – Green and Prosperous Land: A Blueprint for Rescuing the British Countryside

We hope to be able to reschedule these talks at some point in the future. Subsequent meetings will be kept under review.
