* 2023 BCRA Online Seminar via Zoom - MONDAY 9 JANUARY

In 2023, BCRA celebrates its 50th anniversary. To mark this occasion, we are hosting a series of online seminars that will promote the scientific
importance of caves and karst. The seminars will be held on the second Monday of each month in 2023, 19:30–21:00 UK time, commencing in January 2023. Initially four talks are planned from January to April. These talks will use the Zoom platform.

To start this series of seminars, our President - Professor Simon Bottrell of the School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds - will be speaking on 9 January 2023 at 7:30pm. Further details are on our Facebook page, our News Forum, and at http://bcra.org.uk/seminar.

If, as part of this series of seminars, you would like to offer a talk on a science topic that you think would be of interest to a broad caver audience then please contact John Gunn with a title and a few words about your suggested content.
