When Species Meet: Hope



This event will be speech to text transcribed.

Thursday 18 May 2017


Natural history museums are full of collections that tell the story of what happens when two species meet, in particular when our species meets another.

We are responsible for the dramatic loss of animal life, but we also have the power to reverse that trend. In this second of two 'When Species Meet' events, join us as we open up a discussion on the successes, the innovations and the politics of conservation.

This event is a collaboration between Wellcome Collection and the Grant Museum of Zoology, UCL.

This event is FREE. Tickets will become available below from 11.00 on Friday 28 April.

Please click 'Register' to book your ticket below via Eventbrite. Our booking policies remain the same. Find out more about tickets.


This event will have live speech-to-text transcription for visitors who are deaf, deafened and hard-of-hearing. To book a place or for more information, please email us at access@wellcomecollection.org or call 020 7611 2222.
