Butterfly Talks

Coming talks

BCE organises a series of online talks done by butterfly experts, volunteers, and amateurs called Butterfly Talks. These seminars will be done every two weeks on a specific topic related to butterflies, discussing for a short time, and with a panel discussion at the end. The talks are open to the general public and anyone with the link can join.

Butterfly Talks will be announced on our social media (Twitter and Facebook) with the Zoom link to join the talk on the Zoom platform. Also, see below the coming talks and details.
