Beavers in the UK: why you should give a dam!

Dr Lucia Galvez Bravo (Lecturer in Conservation Ecology)
Beavers, those fat, fluffy rodents that just gnaw, and gnaw…. But, do they really live up to their “eager” reputation? How can they help us tackle pollution, climate change and even wildfires?
Join us for this talk and learn about these remarkable animals. Find out why they went extinct in the UK, why they are being reintroduced, and how our team at LJMU are working to unravel their effects on biodiversity and greenhouse gas emissions using the latest scientific tools.

British corals, out of sight, out of mind?

Dr Kostas Kiriakoulakis (Reader in Marine Science)
Think of coral reefs and you imagine warm, shallow clear tropical seas, not the cold, dark, murky waters around Britain. One of the deep ocean's best-kept secrets is slowly being made known. Ancient coral ecosystems hidden from view at great depths, bustling with life, and yet marred by human actions far away. Come to the talk to find out a bit more about these beauties of the deep that are surprisingly close but not as appreciated as should perhaps be!

Embrace or fear novelty? How animals respond to changes in their environment

Professor Claudia Mettke-Hofmann (Professor of Animal Cognition & Personality)
Have you ever wondered why your dog, cat or pet bird responded strangely to new items you introduced into their home? Did they avoid the novel item? The answer might lay in their fear or novelty, which is the topic of my talk.
