Social Hymenoptera (Bees, Wasps & Ants): An Introduction to their Taxonomy & Ecology – Free Virtual Talk

Date(s) - 17 Aug 2021
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Would you like to learn to identify some of the Bees, Wasps and Ants that you see in your garden or on your walks? Maybe you’d also like to explore a bit about their ecology and the social societies in which they live?

Then join us on August the 17th as we introduce some of the common species, how they can be identified and how they build their societies. We’ll also finish off with a discussion on their huge importance for insect evolution, and how their lives leave them open to fraud.








George Ryley, our speaker, is an Ecological Consultant based in Aberystwyth with a passion for invertebrates. This is the second of two talks George will be giving. The first talk, ‘An Introduction to the World of Terrestrial Invertebrates’ will be on Tuesday 6th July at 11am. 

This is a 1 hour talk with an opportunity at the end for Questions and Answers.

Come and find out all about these fascinating creatures by registering your place on

We will then confirm your place and a Zoom link will be sent to you the evening before the event.

The Shared Earth Trust at Denmark Farm Conservation Centre runs a 2 year project called Cadw Natur Mewn Cof/Keeping Nature in Mind which is funded by the Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme. This has enabled us to run these various virtual talks on Zoom.

For all other virtual talks please see our Events Calendar.

These talks are FREE but we welcome donations to help us care for all the wildlife at Denmark Farm.  You can make a donation via our LocalGiving platform. Many thanks for your support.
