The University of Glasgow Iceland Expedition conducted research related directly to the conservation and future management of the Skálanes Nature Reserve. With a focus on nesting seabirds and their habitat, the team carried out projects investigating the resident Puffins, Arctic Terns and invasive Alaskan Lupin. The data collected during the summer will be processed and will attempt to increase the knowledge of the changing biodiversity and ecosystem at Skálanes. During their six weeks the expedition members learned not only a great deal about the subject of their research but also about the landscape around them by working alongside and getting to know the friendly staff at Skálanes. The team were lucky to explore some of Iceland’s breath-taking scenery at the beginning and end of the expedition, gaining a true appreciation of the country’s vast and diverse volcanic landscapes. Camping in the shadow of huge glaciers, getting up close to the birds, spotting seals, dolphins and whales in the Fjord are but a few highlights, the team will miss Iceland and its magic!
