We are delighted to announce that IWNHAS member George Greiff has won the 2018 National Biodiversity Network’s Adult Newcomer Award for wildlife recording beating 5 other shortlisted candidates in this category.
George was nominated by IWNHAS for his outstanding contribution to our local knowledge of distribution and abundance of lower plants on the Island (Mosses, Lichens and Liverworts). He has rediscovered several species not recorded for a Century as well as adding a few which are firsts.
George took at short break from his studies at Oxford to attend the awards ceremony in Nottingham at the end of November where he was presented with his award and prizes. He says “I was really chuffed to have been shortlisted, not to mention actually winning something for the first time in my life!”.
Well done George!
