Lara Howe, the Marine Officer for the Manx Wildlife Trust, is attempting a single-use plastics-free June. Here is how she is getting on.

What does it mean to be a small Island Biosphere Reserve in the context of climate change, environmental degradation and a world in flux?
Simon’s talk is richly illustrated by his photographs and films. You will learn how to bridge the gap between the wild world and your own. Simon shares his unique, first- hand knowledge on animal tracks and signs, mimicry and observation skills, peppered with stories of wild encounters from the UK and beyond. There will be a Q&A session at the end of his talk.
