Getting Busy with Biodiversity

9th-10th July 2019


Learn how to participate in citizen science as we explore the flora and fauna of Rushen Abbey. Students will have an opportunity to identify species of butterflies from the Museum invertebrate collections with MNH Natural History Curator.  Students will learn the importance of scientific, online records to interpret the health of our biodiversity.

*Students will require iRecord app on iPad for recording purposes.

iRecord App enables you to get involved with biological recording. Contribute your species sightings with GPS acquired coordinates, descriptions and other information, thus providing scientists with important new biodiversity information that contributes to nature conservation, planning, research and education.
