Huge success on webinar series!

A big thank you to everybody that has tuned-into any of our special Centenary conference webinars over the past couple of weeks, and of course to our brilliant speakers.

We had a fantastic numbers, far exceeding our expectations and far greater than if the conference had actually gone ahead as planned last year!

With no less than 13 speakers over the 4 nights; 6 of those Keynote speakers supported by local experts – many of which were members of the The Society – there was something for everyone exploring topics such as climate change, habitats, species, geology, underwater archaeology and much, much more.

We are working on uploading the 4 webinars to our new You Tube Channel and also busy obtaining answers to any questions that were unanswered during the live sessions due to time constraints – more details coming soon.

Thanks so much for making it such a memorable birthday celebration and for you interest and support.

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.
