Seaview Cuttlefish Amongs Island Biosphere Images In Finland Exhibition

Four island photographers have had their work featured in an exhibition celebrating a Finnish UNESCO Biosphere Reserve's 30-year anniversary and connections with global Biosphere Reserves like the Isle of Wight.

A cuttlefish from Seaview, taken by local marine photographer Theo Vickers, is now on display in the The Korpoström Research Station and Archipelago Centre on the island of Korppoo in Finland, part of the Archipelago Sea Area Biosphere Reserve.

It is joined by one of our White-tailed Sea Eagles being apparently photobombed by a Grey Seal in a lucky capture by Alan Burch, and a sunset view of St Catherine's Down and coastal cliffs by Martha Henson.

For a sense of our Biosphere communities at work, there are two images by Maria Bell.

One of these features nature-friendly farmer Francesca Cooper inspecting the herd of Belted Galloway cows she manages with Hollie Fallick on the Nunwell Home Farm estate.

The other shows volunteers collecting seagrass seeds as part of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust seagrass meadow restoration work.

The Isle of Wight Biosphere Reserve is featured alongside other members of the World Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves (WNICBR).
