Join us for an evening of light-hearted discussion as we investigate what it is like to search for and study an animal on the brink of extinction. How do conservation organisations go about choosing what to save? What is life like trekking through jungles and swamps looking for an animal that only exists in double figures? If you find it, how would you try to protect it? What are the challenges in communicating conservation messages when it comes to endangered species? With an expert panel of field researchers and leading conservationists, join us to celebrate International Day of Biodiversity and the Year of Forests.

A UCL Grant Museum of Zoology event.

Following the talk join us for a free glass of wine in a private view of the new Museum.
