Andover Advertiser: Megan McCubbin will be at The Lights

As the planet faces new challenges every day, Megan will be leading an informative talk about what those challenges mean for our endangered species. McCubbin is at the forefront of the challenges.

In this show, Megan will explain what it takes to save a species from the brink, and what we can do as a human race to ensure the red list of vertebrate species gets shorter.

Megan opened the National Bird of Prey Hospital at the Hawk Conservancy Trust in 2022 and regularly visits the organisation. She is also the president of the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust.

She is a published author of Atlas of Endangered Species in which the author writes of 20 species that are in severe danger of extinction. The show brought to Andover in May will be an extension of this “beautifully illustrated, fascinating and important document”.

With stories from the conservationist frontline and experiences from around the globe, Megan McCubbin will be passionately explaining why we are so lucky to be sharing this planet with plenty of fascinating beings.
