Raincoast Speaker Series - ANTS

The Raincoast Speaker Series is a long-running social and educational phenomenon! Each winter season, we invite the community to brave the rain and join a panel of experts for in-depth discussions about locally, regionally, and globally relevant issues. New this year we will be offering the series in parallel in Ucluelet and Tofino - that means two opportunities to see each speaker! Attend all 5 topics for your chance to win a prize.

This year’s theme is “Charismatic Microfauna”. Whether you are into bugs that break down decaying forest debris and turn over soil or sea butterflies that help us monitor ocean acidification, there is something to capture your heart in this year’s Raincoast Speaker Series.

Ants are one of most ecologically successful animals on the planet. They are highly abundant and present in nearly every terrestrial habitat, serving diverse and significant ecological roles. They are predators, herbivores, scavengers, and nutrient cyclers as well as partners in
mutualistic relationships with fungi, other insects and plants. Ants are goal-oriented and Ants are one of the most ecologically successful animals on the planet.
