Wolves and Feral Parakeets
14 October 2015 Free
7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
To celebrate Rewilding Sussex and their show at Onca, we are hosting an evening with storytellers and rewilding sleuths.
PART 1: Gonzo Ornithology with Tim Mitchell and Nick Hunt
In the past few years the grey skies of London have been brightened by thousands of green parakeets, colonising the capital one park at a time. Beautiful addition to the city or a threat to local birds? Invasive species or resourceful migrants? And where did they actually come from? Tim and Nick go on the parakeets’ trail, documenting public opinion about these exotic incomers. Join them for a screening of FLYWAYS episode 1, followed by a Q&A.
PART 2: Lost Wolves with Adam Weymouth
Adam Weymouth spent a month in 2014 crossing Scotland on foot, speaking to those that live on the land about how they would feel about the proposed reintroduction of the wolf. It was also a journey to search for Scotland’s last wolf, shot in 1680, which was stuffed and then mysteriously disappeared. He will be speaking about the walk, and telling the tale of Wolf Boy of Devil’s River, a story from Texas at the turn of the 20th century about the eradication of America’s last wolves.
Onca is a charity that inspires creativity and positive action in the face of environmental change. This event is free, but cash donations to Onca on the evening are warmly encouraged. Thank you!
