Zoology Live! 2021: Land, Sea and Sky

Join us online for this year's Zoology Live! Festival. We will be live on YouTube at 7pm every evening from Wednesday 30 June to Friday 2 July. This year we will be broadcasting from the Museum galleries and exploring the animals of the land, sea and sky. Get your questions ready for our wildlife experts, as we explore nature on the doorstep and the animals on display in the Museum. And this year we are looking for you to get involved, recording insects and making a plastics pledge to protect the planet. Want to make sure you don't miss out? Sign up here and you'll get reminders of when these online events will be taking place and how to get involved.

Wednesday 30 June, 7pm: Land

To celebrate the Cows About Cambridge trail, and the moostery sculpture at the Museum of Zoology (not a cow…) we are going on a voyage of discovery into... cowpats! Join us as Curator of Insects Dr Ed Turner dissects a cowpat to reveal the creatures living inside, and ask him your minibeast questions. Then find out about the wildflower meadow that is being established behind one of Cambridge's most iconic buildings - King's College Chapel - as we talk live to botanist Dr Cicely Marshall about how meadows support our local wildlife.

Why not take part in Cowpats About Cambridge (and Beyond), as we record the dung beetles and dung flies that make their homes in these brown splats.
