Waldyke Prince

In October 2014, two presentations at Moray House Trust highlighted the raw and unspoilt beauty of much of Guyana. First, veteran local bird-guide and wildlife biologist, Waldyke (Wally) Prince outlined the possibilities for birding tourism in Guyana. With close to 900 species of birds in Guyana, including 284 in Georgetown, this is more of a realistic prospect than some might imagine. Prince has led expeditions of professional birders, documentary teams and scientific research for many years.

Coastal birding hot spots

Shell Beach, Lake Mainstay, Hope Beach and the Abary River are just some of the coastal birding hot spots identified.

On Thursday 3rd July, Moray House Trust hosted a slideshow by biologist and photographer, Andrew Snyder. Andrew’s areas of expertise include neotropical herpetology, biogeography and taxonomy and his main field of research is patterns of evolution across Guiana Shield reptiles and amphibians. He is studying for a doctorate in Biological Sciences and has worked in several parts of the hinterland in the last three years for Operation Wallacea and the World Wildlife Fund.

Andrew used a series of photos to illustrate the enormous diversity of plant and animal species in Guyana. This is partly due to the varied nature of Guyana’s landscape.  Continue reading

‘A Conversation’ at Moray House Trust

‘A Conversation’ at Moray House Trust

20th August 2013 – Press Release

A few nights ago, Moray House Trust was pleased to host ‘A Conversation’, an exchange between Dr Rupert Roopnaraine  and Brendan de Caires. The essays in Dr. Roopnaraine’s recent prize-winning publication, ‘The Sky’s Wild Noise’, provided much of the material for discussion but the talk extended to other topics such as the challenges of undertaking critical appraisal in a small society. Moray House Trust wishes to thank The Guyana National Lottery for their sponsorship of this event.

Moray House Trust (MHT) is a legacy of the late David de Caires. It is a cultural initiative to foster and preserve artistic expression in Guyana’s diverse culture and to support and contribute to the good works of Guyanese. The mission of the Trust is to host, to support and to facilitate live local cultural events (such as music and poetry recitals, lectures, photographic presentations) and to bring creative artists (writers, poets, singers, musicians, painters, photographers) together with peers, experts and an informed audience to advance local talent.   Continue reading
