Gerald Durrell's Corfu
Following the great success of "Gerald Durrell's Corfu" in 2011, it is being offered again this year by the Durrell School of Corfu. The dates are 11-18 May 2012.
The organizers write:
"Spend a week as part of a small group of like-minded travellers reliving the life of naturalist Gerald Durrell and experience the island of Corfu that he so cherished. Led by experts in botany, ecology, herpetology, ornithology and environmental sciences, you can be sure to get the most out of what this beautiful Greek island has to offer."
Places are limited, though there are still several left. If you are interested in applying, or have any questions about the week, please contact the organizers Alex and Dave Ashcroft by email at email@example.com --- and by the end of January if possible. At that point they need to make some logistical decisions based on estimated total numbers.
Discounts are available for children and couples.
