08 June – Seals and Beavers in Sussex

Saturday June 8th 2024 1.30pm – 3pm at the Discovery Centre.

Presented by Peter Smith, Centre Manager, RSPCA Mallydams Wood.

Peter Smith was the founder and Chief Executive of the Wildwood Trust for 18 years.

He has been a leading proponent of rewilding since the start of his career over 30 years ago, being part of the team that first reintroduced beaver to England and developed many of the first rewilding schemes for ecological restoration. Peter worked across the world as an ecological consultant on some of the most groundbreaking habitat restoration and rewilding programmes at the leading edge of ecological science. 

Peter is an excellent speaker on a subject that most people will find extremely interesting.
