‘Great Goose Adventures’ by David Stroud MBE

The Greater White-fronted Goose is one of the rarest goose populations in the world, and one of the very few in Europe that is not rapidly increasing – indeed it has collapsed since the mid-1990s.  Since 1979, research on its breeding areas in west Greenland, staging grounds in Iceland, and on wintering sites in UK and Ireland has revealed the conservation challenges these geese face, and informed responses. 

 

Our speaker is an award-winning ornithologist with a deep love and knowledge of this migrant species and his insights should make for a thoroughly interesting evening.

National surveys such as The State of Nature report can be depressing reading. The 2019 report reveals that 41% of UK species studied have declined, 26% have increased and 33% shown little change since 1970. Even more depressing is that 133 species have already been lost from our shores since 1500.  

Brian Eversham, as CEO of the local Wildlife Trust, is on the front line in terms of halting these trends, so it is very encouraging that he will have some good news in terms of the future of wildlife in our area. Brian is an inspiring speaker, so don’t miss this special evening.
