I have also written a talk for a Cafe Scientifique event co-organised by the British Council and the Tianjin Natural History Museum on Sunday (see poster). It is an honour to be invited to talk at this event about Galapagos and giant tortoises and I am to be joined by senior panda researcher Wang Dajun from the Center for Nature and Society at Peking University in Beijing. It is a little daunting to be giving a presentation in such prestigious company but I am really looking forward to meeting Dr Wang and to finding out all about his work first-hand.
Needless to say I am very excited. It's been an immense amount of work to plan this trip. If I achieve half of what I have set out, I will be happy.
