TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham is a wildlife expert, photographer and author with a passionate concern for conservation and the environment. Chris Packham was appointed Visiting Professor at the University of Lincoln in April 2015 and continues to share his expertise with both our students and the local community.
Chris will explore the wild side of Halloween with a free-to-attend public lecture where he will discuss how bats live and explore the vital ecological role they play. With support from the Bat Conservation Trust, of which Chris is President, the talk will give audiences the chance to observe a live demonstration of pipistrelle bats.
All About Bats and Owls is part of the University of Lincoln’s flagship Great Lives free public guest lecture series, which aims to provide inspirational insights into different aspects of society – from the entertainment world to elite sport.
This lecture is free to attend but prior booking is essential. Bookings for this lecture will open in September.
The Great Lives series gives an insight into the achievements of leading influential figures and recognisable faces from backgrounds such as the arts, business and economics, politics, health and science as well as bringing more local leading Lecturers and Visiting Professors to the fore.
Designed for prospective students, our own staff and students and members of the public alike, the aim is to inspire and encourage thoughtful conversation about careers, industries and disciplines alongside showcasing some of the diverse research and activities that take place within the University.
