  • We are delighted to welcome Dr James Pearce-Higgins Director of Science for British Trust for Ornithology and a world leader in how climate change affects bird migration. Drawing on his extensive research published in a recent book, James explains how climate change has effected the population and distribution of birds and offers suggestions on how future polices could be modelled to help mitigate the threat of climate change on bird conservation status. Anyone with an interest in climate change,conservation, ecology and birds will not want to miss this talk.As expected with such an important subject there will be time for questions after the talk.
