In addition to the huge array of contemporary approaches to conveying wildlife, there will be displays from the Society’s bursary winners and the Out of the Frame room will show fieldwork and sketches from the Society's Turkish Sweetgum Project and RSPB Wallasea Island Wild Coast Project.

A visit to this show will give you a glimpse of the wild in the heart of London.
