Secondly: for those of you who are Earthwatch fans, and are going to be in London, you should definitely check out this fascinating talk:
“Protected Areas: Do they improve outcomes for key species ?
Earthwatch annual lecture – Thursday 15th March 2012 at the Royal Geographical Society – 6.00pm for 7.00pm start.
Another Earthwatch gathering. Always fun. Always informative. And free.
We are planning to fill the Ondaatje Theatre (750) at the RGS on Thursday 15th March. Please do join us.
1. Please do come and join us to hear two of our top US scientists give their story – Dr John Cigliano speaking about our species based work on the Belize Barrier Reef and Luke Dollar on our carnivore based work in the forests of Madagascar. Both good examples of Earthwatch’s citizen science expeditionshttp://www.earthwatch.org/europe/expeditions/
3. If you can’t come – please do send this invite to those who you know might enjoy an Earthwatch lecture event at RGS. Always a fun evening and always meeting up with kindred spirits.”
