Those who are familiar with GCER will know that we rely heavily on our faithful Biodiversity Information Officer, Holly York. Well, as it turns out, she’s not actually all that faithful – she’s leaving us! But only for a year, on secondment to the Wales Biodiversity Partnership in Cardiff. Holly’s Technical Officer post will be hosted by the Welsh Wildlife Trusts at their office in Cardiff Bay.
Whilst Holly is away, we will have a temporary Biodiversity Information Officer who will start in February and carry out our commercial data searches, enquiries, mapping and other tasks. Hopefully this won’t cause too much disruption, and it will be a worthwhile bit of experience both for Holly and for her stand-in.
