ABWAK Microscopy Workshop
Many collections have a microscope sat getting dusty in a cupboard in somewhere onsite, whilst still relying on sending samples away for analysis. This workshop aims to educate keepers on how to get the most out of their microscope, improve their knowledge of the kit involved, and how to identify parasites from samples. Bringing your own collections microscope, the staff at Birdworld will be delighted to help use your microscope to its full potential.
- Types of magnifying devices
