A lady bird on standing on a flower

Did you know that there are nearly 50 ladybird species in the UK? Dr Peter Brown co-leads the UK Ladybird Survey, a national citizen science programme. Over 10,000 people have contributed data to this project over many years, leading to a much better understanding of the distribution and ecology of these important insects. Using ladybirds as a case study, Peter will talk about the value of citizen science in ecology and conservation - and how people may engage with this.
