'The Linnean Society of London is the world’s oldest active society devoted to natural history. Founded in 1788 by Sir James Edward Smith (1759–1828), who was its first President, the Society takes its name from the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus (1707–1778) whose botanical, zoological and library collections have been in our keeping since 1829 ... Members (Fellows) come from all walks of life and include anyone passionate about the natural world ... The Linnean Society's diverse programme of events covers everything from plant and animal diversity to remote sensing and in vitro fertilisation. We offer a range of events including talks, meetings, workshops and tours ... We are committed to increasing the diversity of our Fellowship, and to providing opportunities for those usually excluded from the study and appreciation of natural history.'

However, I have prepared Records within the relevant Localities for the 'live' English Partnership Websites discovered so far.)

'Nature is not only beautiful but it is also fundamental to our lives. We can’t survive without it, but Wales’s natural environment is in decline and so are the benefits that it delivers. The LNP Cymru project will build a nature recovery network to help reverse this, engaging people and communities, businesses and decision-makers in both practical action and strategic planning for a healthy, resilient and nature-rich Wales.'
