Peter Scott: Patron Saint of Conservation with Chris Moore (at ST JOHN’S HALL)
Friday 7th July 2023
11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Chris Moore explores the remarkable life of the man described by David Attenborough as the patron saint of conservation and whose story is told in Chris’s book, Peter Scott and the Birth of Modern Conservation. Chris was actively involved in the team that lovingly converted and catalogued Sir Peter’s former home in Slimbridge to create the Scott House Museum, which opened in 2019. With global warming threatening the mass extinction of wildlife, Sir Peter’s story is a vivid reminder of these challenges and what we stand to lose.
