Conservation

Dr Michael Brooke is Curator of Ornithology in the University Museum of Zoology, Cambridge. After completing an undergraduate degree in Zoology at Cambridge, his Oxford DPhil studies were on Manx shearwaters on an island off the Pembrokeshire coast. This proved the catalyst for a lifetime of seabird studies, many on the world’s remotest islands, all the while anchored in the Cambridge Zoology Department. Conservation work in the Pitcairn Islands and on a small brown lark in the Cape Verdes have both occupied around 20 years. Please get in touch (mb10005) if you think I might be able to assist your Expedition planning.
