Dr Miranda Bane will speak about how Guernsey can help pollinators by ensuring a healthy environment for them to thrive in, and contribute to vital research into insect populations.
Dr Bane spent her childhood in Guernsey. She developed a fascination with nature at an early age. After Ladies College, she studied Natural Sciences at the University of Bath.
She majored in Ecology and Environmental Science. She pursued a PhD focusing on how pollinators (particularly bumblebees) interact with both each other and the plants in their environment.
In her talk she will give a brief overview of her PhD research and how her findings have shaped her ideas about conservation.
