Hello all,

I thought this update might be of interest.  If you know of any budding 
young naturalists, please pass it along!




14-19 September 2008

An Ecology Week with
David Bellamy & Lee Durrell

The Durrell School of Corfu is pleased to announce the dedication of a 
plaque and release of the memoirs of Theodore Stephanides to coincide 
with "The Amateur Naturalist" seminar led by David Bellamy and Lee Durrell.

This seminar is aimed at amateur naturalists, of any age, who want an 
introduction to the natural world from leading experts in the field. The 
programme is designed to be suitable for advanced amateurs who want to 
learn about the world of Gerald Durrell's /My Family and Other Animals/ 
  as well as for children and family groups developing a deeper sense of 
the ecological variety of the natural world.

The beautiful island of Corfu will offer exciting field trips, where the 
wild life can be experienced under the guiding hand of both local and 
international experts. If time allows a trip to the mainland or Albania 
will also add a dimension to what should be a very exiting week for all
