Last week we welcomed Luke Sutton to the team on a part-time summer internship. Supported by the Peregrine Fund, Luke will be working to build the Global Raptor Information Network’s (GRIN) database of global raptor observations by incorporating data from online databases, museum specimens, and printed atlases.  He will then begin building a GIS including habitat layers and use these layers to build distribution models for raptor species. Luke comes to us fresh from gaining his honours degree in Conservation Biology from Plymouth University; his recent work focused on foraging behaviour, population ecology and dispersal of coastal peregrine falcons.
