We are now in the centenary year of the British Ecological Society (BES). To celebrate this there is a year long Festival of Ecology which includes many events across the country.

The BES is keen to share events online and these can be followed on twitter with # tags (#BES100, #BESFest) and/or by following the BES (@BESCentenary, @BritishEcolSoc).

Throughout the year we hope to get more and more video content of events and activities online. Here is a quick compiliation of existing BES online video content to give you a taste of what we are building upon!

The first Festival of Ecology video was posted by the Sex & Bugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll team and was shot at the BES annual meeting 2012:

The BES Roadies (@BESRoadies) will be taking ecology to music festivals over the summer. So far we are confirmed at Wychwood and Greenman. More video from the BES Roadies will be posted on our YouTube page.

Other BES video currently online is from:
