An introduction to the Guernsey Biological Record Centre
Many of us know what a Biological Record Centre is, as the name explains it very well, but a lot of us don’t know what a Record Centre does, how you can be a part of one or even what makes a record.
So what kind of records exactly do we want?
In a nutshell – all of them! Of particular interest are the normal animals you see. I can almost guarantee people will tell me about a rare bird visiting Guernsey or a rare plant being discovered. The humble hedgehog, rabbit or rat? Not so much. If you’d like to find out more and why I am so interested in common biological records, please do come along to the talk I am giving on;
Saturday 2nd March 2019 at 11:00 am at the Frossard Lecture Theatre, Candie Gardens.
The talk will be about 45 minutes long with questions at the end. I’ll start by introducing myself and talking a little bit about my research history. Yes, Antarctica will make a brief appearance as will penguins. Then I’ll move onto our very own Record Centre, what we do, why that’s important and talk about some of the projects going on and events planned for this year.
