Into the wilds…
We have talks on a range of subjects, covering all the phyla – amphibians, reptiles, fish and small invertebrates, through to mammals. Speakers range from students to professionals. Numerous field meetings take place throughout the year, usually visiting local nature reserves in Dorset and Hampshire. The BNSS Museum has many zoological exhibits from around the world.
