Seahorses and Pipefish in the North Sea

The Zoological Society of London is holding a free lecture in their meeting rooms on 12th February 2008 starting at 6:00 p.m. The subject under consideration is "Seahorses and Pipefish in the North Sea".

There has been a rapid and dramatic increase in numbers of snake pipefish occuring in the sea about northern Britain. The reason for this population is currently unclear but will be under consideration during the evening, along with the impact to our seabird breeding colonies in the UK - snake pipefish are now increasingly being seen in their diet, often with detrimental consequences.

Following the meeting, a three course dinner with the speakers is available at a price of £34 per person including two glasses of wine. Booking must be made in advance.

For further information please email: joy.hayward@zsl.org or telephone 020 7449 6227. The ZSL is situated at Regents Park (Outer Circle), London NW1 4RY.

Please mention WFUK when contacting Joy. Thank you.
