We have been working hard on the Youth for Arctic Nature project this autumn! We are hoping to start testing bird monitoring with youth groups in Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Svalbard, and possibly Greenland this spring.
Here is some of the material we have been developing recently. We would love some feedback on it.
We decided to create:
All of these are still drafts, but they are not going to change too much, especially the species sheets.
We are including here three species sheets, one habitat sheet, and the sheet containing the list of habitats.
Tell us what you think!

On Saturday the 26th of September, Húnaklúbburinn members gathered for a crab drawing class.
First, we retrieved some crab traps from the peer. They had been left in the water overnight with bait, and were full, with twelve invasive Atlantic rock crabs and a confused sculpin inside!
