As part of National Science Week, Jean Drayton has given a talk to students at the New England Girls School on “Dung Beetles and the Environment”. The year 7 students learnt about the different types of dung beetles, their importance and the various roles they play in different ecosystems. The students also got a chance to get up close and personal to live beetles and meet some of the local species in the New England area. It was a great morning!
