The fascinating world of insects in Cork City

About this event

Cork Nature Network are delighted to announce a talk about the world of insects in Cork City with John O’Sullivan.

The free event will take place on Zoom, on 24th June at 7:00 pm.

Urban ecosystems are proving to be unique and vital refuges for insect life. Cork City boasts its own unique suite of invertebrates, many native but also some startling introductions. John O'Sullivan will show some of the more striking examples of the insect life of Cork City and suburbs, highlighting the adaptability of some species and how the life cycle of others has allowed them flourish in such a challenging environment.

About our speaker:

John O'Sullivan is a Guest Lecturer with UCC and has a background in Plant Science. His research interests include conservation, regeneration and urban ecology, with particular emphasis on entomology. He reported the first instance of the alien Harlequin Ladybird breeding in Ireland, and has also recorded several insect species new to both Cork and Ireland.

Join us and find out about the fascinating world of insects in Cork City.

No camera or microphone are needed to attend the event.

We look forward to seeing you!
