AES attends Invertebrate Link Conference

Published: 09 November 2006

The AES attended an important conference entitled "Who will watch the small things that run the world? - Recruiting the next generation of invertebrate specialists" at the Natural History Museum in London on 9th November.

In addition to attending the conference sessions, we had a poster display and there was an AES/Bug Club stand. Copies of the poster and a copy of the BCM were also included in the delegate packs. The AES stand generated a lot of interest, probably because all those present were themselves particularly aligned with our aim to encourage an interest in entomology amongst the younger generation.

The Conference was organized by Invertebrate Link, of which the AES is a constituent member organisation. Invertebrate Link is an umbrella organisation for invertebrate conservation in the UK. The AES is able to send two representatives to InvLink meetings, one of whom (Dr David Lonsdale) is on the Executive Committee.

A summary of the conference and its resolutions are available to AES members via its online forum.
