Webinar 2: Species Invasions: History and Horizon Scanning

We successfully kicked-off our series of special FREE webinars yesterday evening – thank you to those that joined – don’t miss the next instalment coming up 19:00hrs tomorrow evening (Weds 31st March).
This time we’ll be looking at ‘Species invasions’ over time on the Island and what sort of things we might expect going forward.
We’ve got another brilliant line-up for you with our keynote speaker Prof. Helen Roy opening with ‘Biological invasions: learning from the past and looking to the future’.
Helen will be followed by the IW Natural History & Archaeological Society’s very own Keith Marston and Dr. Roger Herbert. Keith is speaking about bird invasions and Roger will be looking at things from a marine point of view locally.

iRecord Training Update

Unfortunately, the advertised iRecord Training course in the recent e-bulletin is now fully booked.

It looks as this course has been very popular, and sold out quickly. It may be that the FSC offer another round of training based on high demand – we will let you know about any developments.

If you were thinking of attending the training, please do still register your interest at iwatchwildlife@gmail.com and we can then contact you directly should any further opportunities arise.

Apologies for any disappointment.
