BINCO visits the Oxford Museum of Natural History

During the first week of November, three of our members visited Oxford to study the collected insects from Cusuco National Park in Honduras. This collection was never before studied in detail and proved to be worth checking out. The pictures above give an impression on the work we did there.

BINCO gives a morning fieldcourse

The nature conservation organisation ‘Natuurpunt’ asked us to teach a field course in invertebrate surveying.  It was a successful morning with the right animals at the right time and at the right place… To be repeated!

The winners of our ‘In het oog, in het hart’ photo contest are known. Our jury selected three stunning pictures, submitted by Boris Godfroid and Wim Smets. The winning photos are displayed at the Zoological Museum in Leuven or can be accessed through this link. We congratulate the winners and thank all the participants for their high quality entries.

BINCO launches photo project ‘In het oog, in het hart’

To raise awareness about the current biodiversity crisis, we compiled sets of pictures of endangered species in Belgium. We are showing these pictures at selected public locations in Leuven to show the beauty of natural diversity and the necessity to act promptly to stop the decline of biodiversity.
