Talks and walks


We regularly give talks on New Forest wildlife to local and national organisations, ranging from local wildlife societies to national ornithological conferences. We are able to offer a general introduction to New Forest wildlife, as well as topical overviews of our current projects and New Forest conservation issues. For 2021, we will also be offering an overview of "2020 in 2020", which is our quest to find 2020 species within the New Forest in 2020. Our current talks programme for 2020/21 is provided at the bottom of the page, together with our contact details.

Wildlife tours

We will be offering a range of guided wildlife walks and cycles once coronavirus restrictions are liftedthat will enable residents and visitors to safely explore some of the most spectacular sites and habitats in the New Forest, see and hear some of the special wildlife, and learn about conservation issues and responsible recreation. Further details will be provided here soon!
