Virtual Meet Ups (VMUs)

These Virtual Meet Ups are an opportunity to keep in touch and share skills and knowledge during lockdown. They are short natural history webinars, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from either an FSC BioLinks team member or a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. We host them on Zoom, we will send out joining instructions on the day of the event. Sign up to the FSC BioLinks newsletter to find out about other online learning opportunities here.
