Environmental Sustainability Institute

Last week George visited the Environmental Sustainability Institute at the Tremough University campus in Penryn which carries out leading environmental research for government departments like Defra and for private businesses. 

They have some state of the art science labs, and during his visit George saw some of the work being done to research bee populations, and drone technology. The latter of which offers new opportunities to understand the environment with drones being able to provide sophisticated survey date, allowing for a better understanding of the topography of the land, and a better assessment of issues like flood risk, plant health, soil quality and landscape features.
