Talking Naturally – Lesser Crested Tern in Libya

During one of our sillier moments on the Conference Calls podcast we go to talking about dictators and facial hair when I made a throwaway comment about the Lesser Crested Terns in Libya. It seems this distinct population may be at risk from the troubles in Libya. I for one wouldn’t be that flippant as to mock the suffering of the Libyan people under Gaddafi but it seems that they are not the only ones at risk. Incredibly a small population of 200 pairs nest on an islet in the city of Benghazi, stronghold of the Libyan rebels.

Lesser Crested Tern: Libya

Anyway, a listener of the podcast got in touch with Charlie and he spoke to Abdulmula Hamza a PhD student at Hull University who is coordinating the monitoring project. Please listen in.
