The extinct Warrah, Dale's time on the cruise ships and Falkland Islands Fisheries.
Falkland Conservation's Watch Group joined the Past Finders at the Historic Dockyard Museum on Saturday 20th March for a talk on a variety of subjects.
The talk started with a slide show on the extinct Warrah wolf. When Dale was a young boy he made a very important discovery - he found skeletal remains near his home on West Falklands. These specimens were sent to the Natural History Museum in London for carbon dating and were found to be over 1,000 years old.
Dale also spoke about his time on small expedition ships where he would give lectures to other passengers. Part of his duties also included transporting safety equipment ashore on South Georgia and Antarctica ahead of other visitors.
The last part of Dale's talk was on his work with the Falkland Islands Fisheries Department. There was much excitement when Dale revealed he had fish specimens with him for the group to look at!
A huge thank you to Dale for coming into the Museum. The Past Finders and Watch Group thoroughly enjoyed your talk and look forward to seeing you again in the future.
