Canned Ecology Roadshow

Congratulations to Prof Mark Emmerson, Prof Jaimie Dick, Dr Tancredi Caruso and Dr Nessa O'Connor who recently won an award from the NERC to celebrate their 50th anniversary and a series of summer outreach events. They have bundled four NERC projects together (CBESS, MERP, SSP, and freshwater invasives) for this to produce a mobile outreach platform - a trailer with mobile touch tank and associated banners etc.

They took this up to Stormont for the launch of NI Environment week and had a lot of interactions with MLAs (Anna Lo, Steven Agnew, and Basil McCrea) and Stormont staffers.
