These activities are supported by the Buckingham Town Council and the British Ecological Society, the UK’s academic learned society supporting the science of ecology. During 2013 the British Ecological Society will be celebrating its centenary with a series of events, conferences and publications that aim to increase the profile of ecological science among scientists and the public. These events are part of the Festival of Ecology, a public focussed nationwide celebration of ecological science with over sixty participating institutions across the UK.
Professor Georgina Mace FRS, President of the British Ecological Society said, “The British Ecological Society is delighted to be working with The Conservation Volunteers in celebrating our Centenary year. This event is part of our Festival of Ecology through which we hope visitors will learn more about the science of ecology and how relevant and fascinating this science is to understanding the challenges we face in the world today.”
