Future Talks

As we are moving our activities online, we are incurring new costs. Your donation helps support our new channels.


Our YouTube Channel has recordings of past talks.

Regrettably, the public health situation still means it is likely to be some time before we can resume live meetings.  We may continue to broadcast talks from the Discovery Centre so that if people prefer not to be in a room with a large number of people they can still join in.

To keep numbers manageable, you will need to book via Eventbrite. Information about using Zoom will be supplied with your booking. You will need to install the Zoom app to your computer, tablet or Smartphone. You only need to book one place for each computer, so if you are sharing a screen with someone in your house, you only need one. We are keeping the allocation of tickets quite small to keep it manageable, so please book yours asap to avoid disappointment. If you book but are unable to attend, please use the link in the confirmation email to cancel your ticket. Otherwise you might deprive someone who can join on the day.

We will open the Zoom meeting from 7pm to give people ample time to get connected, settled in and chat. Please arrive by 7.25pm

Only one ticket needed per screen. If you are sharing with someone, they don’t need a separate ticket.

A recording will be available after the event on our YouTube channel.

If you prefer, you can watch live on YouTube, but with less participation

Mon 2nd November 7.30pm “Rewilding Hampshire“.  Hampshire & IoW Wildlife Trust

Space for wildlife on our land and in our seas is being constantly squeezed: Built over, bruised, bashed, and beaten. We need to stop abusing it with chemicals and pollution. We have to give nature space and time to breathe and recover. We need a Nature Recovery Network made up of hundreds or thousands of wild spaces on land and a sea, connected up to form the arteries that will help wildlife spread through our counties.

In the coming years we believe that there is potential to find these opportunities for rewilding our land and seas. We want to see the space for wildlife trebled in our counties. We will look to at least double the land we own and we will work with farmers, landowners and public bodies to transform areas of our counties and change the fortunes of our wildlife.

Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust is one of 46 Wildlife Trusts working across the UK. With the invaluable support of volunteers and members we manage over 50 nature reserves. We also work with other organisations and landowners to protect and connect wildlife sites across the county and inspire local communities and young people to care for wildlife where they live.
