Gone: A search for what remains of the world's extinct creatures Thursday, 6th May 2021 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Tonight, Michael Blencowe takes us on a journey through history as he travels the globe to uncover fascinating and tragic tales of extinction from his recently published book 'Gone: A search for what remains of the world's extinct creatures'.
Starting at Brighton's wonderful Booth Museum of Natural History we'll travel to the caves of New Zealand via Devon and Helsinki and end up floating on an inflatable crocodile on Widewater Lagoon near Shoreham. We'll hear about the incredible Great Auk, the colossal Steller's Sea-cow, New Zealand's mighty moa, the delicate Ivell's Sea Anemone and many more lost creatures.
The talk will last for approximately 60 minutes.
This talk is free but donations to assist the work of Sussex Wildlife Trust would be appreciated. There will be an opportunity to donate at the end of the talk. If you're not already a Sussex Wildlife Trust member please consider joining us to support our wildlife conservation work across Sussex.
