The Cornwall Butterfly and Moth Society PhD Studentship
The Cornwall Butterfly and Moth Society PhD Studentship will be carried out over four years and will commence in April 2019. This project will not only investigate the importance of mine sites for butterflies, moths and bees but will also examine how to integrate the mine sites with the Buglife's B-Line pathways project. Details of Buglife’s project and the University project can be obtained by speaking to our Secretary Keith Wilson. CBMS has agreed to give grants totalling worth £27,000 (including Gift Aid) to Exeter University for the research. It is anticipated that this money will not be taken from our reserves but will be donated over the next four years by some of our members and other supporters. CBMS has already received firm commitments to donate £25,000 of this money.
