Surrey Wildlife Trust: Online Talk: The Impact of Wildfires
10th May @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Andy Elliot (Wildlife TAC) and Ben Habgood (Surrey Wildlife Trust) to explore the impact of wildfires on local heathland.
Over the last few years, we have increasingly seen the devastation of wildfires around the world, and their impact on human life and our wildlife.
Last year, in Surrey one particular wildfire consumed over 74 acres of rare and precious heathland. With climate change and increasing anti-social human behaviour, our heathlands are at great risk of more and more wildfires unless we do our very best to mitigate and educate people about their effects.
Andy Elliot from WildfireTac will share his incredible knowledge and passion for understanding wildfires and their impact on our nature resources and homes. Following Andy’s presentation, Ben Habgood will talk about the impact of wildfires on our nature reserves.
Free to members, non-members – suggested donation £10.
