Wild Lunch Wednesdays give you the opportunity to hear directly from ZSL staff and students, as they describe their fieldwork experiences and discuss the challenges and rewards of working in conservation science.
Throughout February, March and April 2021, we were joined 'live' by viewers from across the world, giving them the opportunity to directly engage with our experts and ask their questions.
You can re-watch all of the events below and also read our follow-up blogs (where we answered some of the audience questions that we didn't have time for!)
- Wendesday 3rd February - Diving deep in Greenland. Meet ZSL scientist Chris Yesson and hear about his fieldwork, studying the deep sea floor in Greenland, as he describes close-encounters with icebergs and reveals how he studies what's at the bottom of the sea without getting his feet wet!
