The talk given by Trevor Beebee on 29th August at Hurstpierpoint Village Centre was a great success. The Woodland, Flora & Fauna Group sponsored evening was well attended and enjoyed by all. A short introduction by the sponsors describing our conservation work was followed by a very descriptive illustrated talk by the author and emeritus professor of evolution behaviour and environment, Trevor Bee. He described the effects that climate change was having on British wildlife and their populations. This talk was fulfilling the group’s continuing ambition of providing eminent speakers to our annual public events to share their knowledge with us and improve our understanding of the natural world. This talk met all our aspirations in this respect and we are very grateful to Trevor that he found time to speak to us.
The Chairman, Michael Nailard, introduces the event and describes some of the group’s work.

The difficulties of the natural environment’s struggle to overcome adversity were aptly depicted by a newspaper’s cartoon as a conclusion to Trevor’s talk.
