Speaker: Neil Gartshore

Between Antarctica and Africa are the Prince Edward Islands. In 1986 and 1987, Neil was employed by the Percy Fitzpatrick Institute for African Ornithology, through the University of Cape Town, as a field research assistant. On this South African possession he collected data on petrels, skuas and albatrosses. The talk looks at the island’s history, its wildlife and the work Neil engaged in.
