  • Island Conservation : Past Damage, Developing Understanding and Modern Solutions given by DR.MICHAEL BROOKE Indoor Event

    St Mark's Church Hall
    Island Conservation : Past Damage, Developing Understanding and Modern Solutions

    DR.MICHAEL BROOKE 

    Tonight Mike will take a look at how we are getting quite good at eliminating predators from islands with conservation benefits, especially for seabirds.

    Mike is the Curator Emeritus of Ornithology at Cambridge University’s Museum of Zoology. His doctorate was on Manx Shearwaters at Skokholm in Pembrokeshire. Since then he has been lucky to study seabirds all over the world. In the latter part of his career modern gadgetry has revealed in astounding detail what seabirds do at sea. This research provided the basis for his acclaimed book “Far from Land” which was the basis for his talk to us in March 2022.
