Happy New Year from the Map of Life team!
The official launch party for the Map of Life took place a few months ago in October, at the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences in Cambridge. Following on from the launch we are continuing to participate in science events for the public and publicise the Map of Life widely, at Universities, schools, science museums and academic societies across the world.
A few weeks ago we were joined by the very able Rosie Amos to help with a big publicity push, preparing packages of information and free posters and postcards to be sent to established Universities throughout the UK, mainland Europe, Americas, Australia, New Zealand Asia and Africa. These publicity packages will be sent out as soon as the stamps are placed and then we move onwards to the next steps in spreading the word!
