Here are a few words about our speaker Kerry Calloway:
"I have worked at the Natural History Museum in London for over ten years in a variety of roles; including running the live tropical butterfly house, as a behind the scenes tour guide, visitor assistant and in the entomology and earthworm research labs and collections. I am also a trustee and tutor for the Earthworm Society of Britain (yes, there is such a thing) and am very passionate about all aspects of natural history but particularly engaging people in the world of the humble but super important earthworm."
