The most common creatures in London are insects, yet their presence in the urban environment is often forgotten. You might be surprised where you can find insects in the city, if you know where to look. Join the British Ecological Society on an evening walk through the streets and open spaces of Bloomsbury to find out more about the secret lives of insects in the heart of London. Discover ants, bees, bugs and much more along the way with insect expert Gabrielle Flinn.
Gabrielle is currently researching bumblebee behaviour at the University of Nottingham. She has a particular interest in the roles of social insects in wider ecosystems, particularly in rainforests. Learn more about her research on YouTube.
Meet outside the British Ecological Society’s headquarters at Charles Darwin House.
