The Cyril Diver Project 

The Cyril Diver project has been re-examining pioneering ecological surveys carried out in Studland in the 1930s to find out what has changed and set the agenda for the future management of the national nature reserve. Citizen scientists have been at the heart of the project and its legacy is set to be felt far into the future.
