Launch of interactive map for ParrotNet research group

We have been working in collaboration with the ParrotNet team from DICE (Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology) to design and develop an interactive map which highlights sightings of invasive parrots across Europe.

The team are hoping to understand why parakeets are such successful invaders and how they can predict their agricultural, ecological, economic and societal impacts.

Allowing users to filter through thousands of entries (and hundreds of thousands of sightings), the map will assist researchers in how parakeets may be affecting specific areas of interest. Jim Groombridge and Simon Tollington plan to continue adding data in the next few years from numerous different sources, increasing the number of sightings, species and countries affected and assisting future research across the ParrotNet network.

For more information on ParrotNet and to view the interactive map, please see some of the links below:

Launch of new SSPSSR website

Dear web publishers,

We are pleased to announce the launch of the new SSPSSR website where our primary focus was improving the website navigation, reducing  the number of content webpages and archived material and providing a simplified user journey throughout the site.

Please visit the site at  to see the finished product. Harriet Armstrong-Viner from SSPSSR also kindly asks to check any links that are directed to SSPSSR from your website and that they are updated accordingly.

It has been a rewarding project and it has been a pleasure working and collaborating with Harriet, Eddy and Jackie from the SSPSSR web and marketing team.

Best Wishes,
Web Support
