The vole truth: observing our native endemic vole subspecies on skomer island across the decades

Datasets get more valuable the longer they are collected and Dr Claire Risley has been lucky enough to be involved in the continuation of data collection on one of our most interesting mammals: the skomer island vole.

Please join us on the 26th February to see the first albino skomer vole discovered!

About Claire:

Claire is an infectious disease epidemiologist with interests in biodiversity and conservation modelling. Her research focuses on the large-scale predictors of disease, for example the relationship between disease, biodiversity and climate.

Specifically she’s interested in the interaction between biodiversity and disease, which has led her to study diseases of rodents and enabled her to participate in the long term monitoring of Skomer island voles.
