Wessex branch

Wessex branch AGM followed by a lecture

As global climate change becomes a daily reality, the coldest, driest, windiest, most isolated place on earth is also changing and this affects the species that live there.

Join Professor Lloyd Peck from British Antarctic Survey and a fellow at Wolfson College, Cambridge to learn about the adaptations of Antarctic marine animals and the way in which they are responding to environmental change. Lloyd is a leading polar marine biologist with experience of over 20 field seasons. His investigations focus on animal adaptations in extreme environments, and he conducts experiments ‘in situ' on the seabed. His many achievements have been recognised by the award of a Polar Medal and other honours. He is also an excellent science communicator and gave the Royal Institution Christmas lectures in 2004 and has done other televised lecture series since then.


This lecture will be preceded by a very short AGM. The AGM is members' chance to review the events of the previous year, to elect a new committee for 2020-21, and to ask questions. All are welcome to attend however only Wessex branch members may vote. The agenda will be available to download shortly.
