We have had to change the date of the following presentation to Thursday 17th August. Still the same time, just a different date because Dr Swinnerton’s flight plans have had to change. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you wish to attend please can you email elizabeth.corry@durrell.org to reserve a space as seating is limited.

Puffins, petrels and pests – saving seabirds across the Atlantic

An evening presentation by Dr Kirsty Swinnerton

Durrell Academy 17th August at 19.00

Kirsty will talk about seabird recovery work in the Caribbean (British Virgin Islands, Antigua and others), her own work in Puerto Rico and show similar work undertaken in the UK (Isles of Scilly, Hebrides etc) and how seabird recovery programmes might work in Jersey. She will show how the problems (pests) and recovery actions (pest management, social attraction, nest-boxes) are the same in the different regions for different seabirds and how we can exchange ideas and lessons learned across species, organisations and regions. She will also illustrate how some of the same species use both regions (e.g. Manx shearwater, Arctic tern) – and, therefore, require management actions in both regions to benefit the global population.

Please come along. Durrell’s Academy is across the Zoo’s car park Google maps
