The Pat Costen Memorial Lecture
Communique - Newsletter of La Societe Guernesiaise Bug World: Sex, Violence and a Cast of Billions

23rd September - 7.30pm at St James

Dr George McGavin is an entomologist, author, academic, television presenter and explorer. In this lecture he looks at the importance of insects - the most diverse and successful group of animals on earth. They are an exceptional component of global food chains and without them the world would be a very different place. But insects have a dark side - they have changed the short course of human history by killing hundreds of millions of people and destroying their crops.

La Société Guernesiaise was founded in 1882 to encourage the study of the history, natural history, geography and geology of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the conservation of the Bailiwick’s natural environment and the preservation of its historic buildings and monuments. 125 years later, this is as much true as it was then and the Société is the second largest landowner after the States of Guernsey and is very active in promoting, conserving and studying all aspects of island life.
