Cambridge Natural History Society’s spring programme: First Talk
 
On Thursday 7th February, Leah Fitzpatrick will give a talk on venom. This is the first talk in the Cambridge Natural History Society’s spring programme.
 
Leah Fitzpatrick, an MSc student at Imperial College London and the Natural History Museum, will give a crash course on venom featuring real specimens! Venom is one of the most widely used biological weapons in the animal kingdom, with just under 200,000 species utilising it in their arsenal. But what is it made from? How did it evolve? And how is it used by animals today?
 
The talk starts at 6:45 pm prompt, in the David Attenborough Building, CB2 3QZ
 
Tea and coffee will be available for a small donation from 6:15 pm.
 
All welcome – Admission £3; CNHS members £1.50; students with ID 50p; ARU Wildlife Society & Cambridge University Nature Society members free.
 
Do come along (and we go to the pub afterwards).
 
There is no car parking on site.
