Pen has been honoured for his science outreach work, winning the 'Science Postgraduate Excellence in Outreach Award'. The award recognises outstanding contributions to public engagement with science. Pen has been involved in many outreach activities for the project MammalWeb, a joint project between the University and the Durham Wildlife Trust where members of the public help with mammal monitoring by deploying camera traps. Pen has worked with students from Belmont Community School in Durham, teaching them about camera trapping, and allowing them to do their own field work and research with the camera traps. Together, they made a video to explain more about MammalWeb and their experiences with it. You can watch the full video by clicking here, or a shorter version of the video here.
