VISITOR’S GUIDE AND BIRDS AND MAMMALS BOOK LAUNCHED
By J. Brock (FINN)
Falklands Conservation have been busy lately with launching “A Visitor’s Guide to the Falkland Islands” by Debbie Summers and “Birds and Mammals of the Falkland Islands” by Robin Woods, Mrs Anne Woods and Mr. Alan Henry. At a special reception held at the Beagle Bar at the Malvina House Hotel in Stanley on Monday night, the authors of both books were available to sign them for invited guests.
In his speech launching the books, Chairman of Falklands Conservation made mention of other travel writers wanting to copy the format that Debbie Summers used in her guide. He also mentioned the outstanding work that was done on the “Birds and Mammals of the Falkland Islands” book and the detail that was put into every page.
In attendance was H. E. the Governor Mr. Howard Pearce, Councillors, Falklands Conservation Staff, the media, and business owners as well as other members of the public. SeaLed PR did the organising, with punch for arriving guests and fish and chips wrapped in Penguin News for nibs.
