The Linnean Society is hosting a lecture by Dr. Susan Cheyne of the Orangutan Tropical Peatland Project, who will be discussing the important work of OuTrop in studying and protecting orangutans in the highly endangered peat swamps of Indonesia.
This is a topic near and dear to my heart, and I would strongly recommend attending to learn more about the tragic situation in Indonesia and what is being done/can be done to help.
The lecture starts at 6 pm so again I would recommend that we meet in the courtyard near to the front door of the venue at 5:30 to introduce ourselves to each other and head in for good seats. Burlington House is a stone's throw away from Piccadilly Circus tube and is the building with the red flags on it. If you go under the arch you will be in a courtyard, which is where we will meet. I'll try to stand near to the doors of the venue, but just look for a someone/a group of people loitering about in the courtyard looking expectant and that will probably be me/us!
This lecture is free, but pre-registration is required. Please go to the link below to read more about the lecture and to register. I recommend registering as soon as possible to ensure that you have a space.
(I would love to register on behalf of the group but that can become rather complicated, so individual registration is probably the best way to go.)
As usual, whoever would like to continue socializing and discussing can join us afterwards at a local pub!
