Chelonia at Chester

logo
This Saturday, 18th October, sees The British Chelonia Group’s Northern Symposium, which is being kindly hosted by Chester Zoo. Non-members are also welcome to attend this symposium, that runs from 9am – 4pm.

Εικόνα 038Speakers on the day are to include Siuna A Reid, a top Veterinary Surgeon from Lytham St. Annes in Lancashire with a good deal of Chelonia Treatment experience and several books on the subject to her name. She will speak on ‘Unravelling The Secret Of Hibernation’. Also speaking will be Julian Sims, Jen Jones – the Projects Manager of the Galapagos Conservaton Trust, Mike Wilkes  – a photographer and guide with 12 years experience in the Galapagos, and Andy Browne who will talk about his rescue centre’s work with Chelonia.

Cost to attend the Northern Symposium is just £30 including lunch, tea/coffee and Zoo admission.The BCG have also been fortunate enough to have been given a limited edition Giant Tortoise print by the renowned wildlife artist, Robert Fuller, for auction at the Symposium in support of further fund raising. Although I am away myself in Florida this weekend and so unable to attend to this event, I highly recommend it to anyone interested in Chelonia and in helping support of this superb group.
