Members of the Natural Science Department attended the Natural Science Collections Facility Forum held at Goudini Spa from 28 – 31 May. The department was represented by Dr Igor Muratov, Dr Thembeka Nxele, Dr John Midgley, Mr Siyabonga Zamisa, Dr Kirstin Williams and Mr Matabaro Ziganira. The forum provided an opportunity for discussions about collections, access to data, transformation in collections and science communication. It was a very interactive forum with café conversation styled discussions which allowed people to network with staff from other institutions. The Natural Science Collections Facility is a network of South African institutions holding natural science collections, established as part of the Department of Science & Technology’s Research Infrastructure Roadmap and co-ordinated by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI).
