Event description
Why don't we see as many insects on our windscreen! Where have the bees gone and what should we do?

About this Event

Not so long ago, during a summer drive in the country our car windscreens were continually splattered by unfortunate insects. These days this is no longer a problem but one of the reasons for this has dark undertones. Many of those splatted insects were our pollinators, pest predators and important food for other wildlife, and their population is declining sharply. What can be done to halt what is one of the most worrying signs of our biodiversity crisis?

Our expert panel on this is:

Craig Macadam is an invertebrate ecologist with over 25 years’ experience, and is currently Conservation Director with Buglife - The Invertebrate Conservation Trust. He specialises in freshwater invertebrates, but has a good working knowledge of the ecology of a range of terrestrial groups, and is particularly interested in the biodiversity of urban areas and the impact of climate change on invertebrates.

Claire Pumfrey is a Conservation Officer for Buglife- The Invertebrate Conservation Trust. Claire joined the Scotland team in October 2019 to deliver Central Scotland B-Lines and has since been involved in the development of other pollinator projects.

The event will be on the Zoom platform, log in details will be sent out automatically by Eventbrite a couple of hours before the event. Please check your spam box as sometimes these auto messages end up there!
