“The Cyril Diver Project”

Date/Time
Date(s) - 23 November, 2013
2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Illustrated Talk by David Brown, Project Manager

David Brown will explain what the Cyril Diver Project is and its importance. In the 1930’s Captain Cyril Diver carried out an ecological survey of Purbeck, leaving a legacy of field-notes, diaries, maps and photos.

Over the next three years, David Brown is doing a second survey, checking the current status of over 250 rare and threatened species to show how healthy are the dunes, heath, wetlands and woodlands nowadays. A comparison of his findings with those of 80 years ago will show how much has changed over time.

This information will help future management in Purbeck and in other parts of the country facing problems, including disease, climate change and the growth of tourism.
