An unnatural history of the National Trust


An unnatural history of the National Trust


Speaker: Dr David Bullock

Over the century or so of its existence the National Trust has sought to care for buildings and their objects, and landscapes and their wildlife, for the benefit of the nation. The high nature value of the Trust’s coast and countryside and it is evaluated at regular intervals. But what about the “less natural”, such as the natural history collections in the big houses and the wildlife of ancient buildings? Using examples from National Trust properties I will explore the significance of these assets for the conservation biology in a rapidly changing world.
