This lecture is free to attend and will take place in person and online. It is open to everyone with A-level students especially welcome.
The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health in collaboration with The Linnean Society of London will host the 2023 Irene Manton lecture.
Celebrating the significant contribution made by women to the Natural Sciences, this year our speaker will be Julia Patricia Gordon Jones, Professor in Conservation Science, Bangor University.
Julia will explore whether conservation is working and if so, how do we know that it is? She will explore questions such as ‘do protected areas stop species declining?’, ‘is carbon offsetting slowing the loss of tropical forests?’ and ‘how can a small conservation organization best save the critically endangered Livingstone Fruit Bat?’.
The Linnean Society of London will tell the fascinating story of Irene Manton, who the lecture is named after and the vital contribution that she made to botany.
Taking place in person on The University of Manchester campus, the event will also be live-streamed for attendees wanting to attend remotely. Further information will be sent to registered attendees prior to the event.
Venue AccessAble information can be found on Accessable.
Closed captions will be available for attendees watching remotely.
Should you have any specific requirements, accessibility needs, or other specific requests please notify email@example.com by Friday 17th November.
We look forward to seeing you there for what promises to be a truly inspiring evening!
