AGM 2018 with Patrick Barkham
We are pleased to announce that our keynote speaker at our Annual General Meeting in September will be Guardian journalist and author of Badgerlands Patrick Barkham.
The Badger: Hero or Villain?
The badger is in the news once again with the government's controversial cull expanding this autumn. Patrick Barkham will discuss the fascinating history of humans and badgers from The Wind in the Willows to the recent cull. Why are we always in conflict with our largest surviving carnivorous mammal? Why do we feel so sentimental about this great survivor? Is there an alternative to culling that can solve the problem of bovine TB?
Patrick Barkham is an award-winning author and Natural History Writer for The Guardian. His first book, The Butterfly Isles, was shortlisted for the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje prize. His second, Badgerlands, was hailed by Chris Packham as “a must read for all Britain's naturalists” and his third, Coastlines, was judged ‘an informative, enthusiastic and at times rapturous celebration of our shores’ by Blake Morrison.
Critics have called his latest book, Islander (2017), ‘charming and attractive’ (The Spectator), ‘a complete delight’ (Scotland on Sunday) and ‘vibrant and full of fascinating detail’ (The Sunday Times).
Patrick lives on the edge of the Broads in Norfolk with his family.
