STAFF WORK: MAURITIUS

Earlier this year Senior Lecturer MARTIN URSELL and Life Drawing tutor ALDOUS EVELEIGH accompanied Middlesex’s Science and Technology faculty on their annual trip to Mauritius. During this the students work with the Durrell Foundation on their pink pigeon conservation program. Through reportage Martin and Aldous (along with fellow sketchbook-er and senior lecturer Peter Thomas) documented the work of the Durrell team in saving the critically endangered animals of Mauritius and further, how they worked with the university’s Natural Sciences students. Below are a small selection from the drawings they brought back- if would like to read about the trip in more detail click this link to Martin, Peter and Aldous’ blog.

To cut to the punchline, this led to my meeting Lee Durrell and being invited by her to attend an award ceremony, and afternoon of discussion at the Natural History Museum,
