Buxton Field Club’s next talk:
Abundance: Nature in Recovery – Karen Lloyd
Saturday 5th February 7.00pm
Based on the book of the same name, the talk addresses the urgent need to tell positive stories from the conservation front line, and will show that, where people focus the right kinds of attention, repair and recovery are absolutely possible. It will include Karen’s visits to Romania’s Carpathian mountains tracking bears and wolves, the return of beavers to Scottish river systems, a bird rescue centre in Hungary, restoring the Imperial eagle to the Hungarian Steppe and land use in the Lake District. Abundanceis definitely a book about hope, but it doesn’t shy away from also examining some of the forces that have driven the loss of habitats and wildlife.

Her first two books, The Gathering Tide: A Journey Around the Edgelands of Morecambe Bay and The Blackbird Diaries are both published by Saraband.
