BSCG's next public talk is on 21st November at 7.30pm in the Badenoch Centre (Youth room) Spey Street, Kingussie. It is an illustrated talk on . Craig is Conservation Director of Buglife, the charity that stands up for the small creatures that run the planet. Last year he received the RSPB Species Champion for Scotland award in recognition of a decade of work in which he has developed Buglife Scotland into an established conservation organisation. Buglife is currently involved with the Cairngorms rare invertebrates project.

In 2017 Craig undertook a survey of parts of the Spey catchment for stoneflies. He co-authored an authoritative pictorial guide to British mayflies published in 2010. With increasing pressures on our rivers and burns from such things as climate change, invasive species, water abstraction and pollution, not to mention growing concern for conserving vulnerable wildlife like pearl mussels and otters, this talk will provide a fascinating insight into the life of our burns.
