Our programme comprises mainly talks in the autumn season, and field trips during the spring when the nature of Cyprus is at its best. 

When we have a talk, we meet for refreshments from 10.30, and have the talk from 11.00 - 12.00. Field trips usually start at 10.30 too.

​Our main topics are the fauna and flora of Cyprus, but we are open to any natural history subject, and welcome guest speakers. 

Dave and Ros have been studying and photographing the wildlife of Cyprus for almost 20 years, and produced a couple of books: "The Amphibians and Reptiles of Cyprus" and "Wildlife of Cyprus", the latter with 44 authors and over 1100 photos from 100 photographers.

The group also benefits from members with extensive knowledge of wild flowers.
