Expeditions to far-flung places to collect specimens sound like the stuff of adventure stories, but still take place today.  Join Curator of Malacology Dr Richard Preece as he describes the Sir Peter Scott Commemorative Expedition to the Pitcairn Islands in 1991-2.  This international expedition lasted 18 months, and sought to provide the first detailed biological survey of Henderson Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and work on Pitcairn itself, once home of the mutineers from HMS Bounty.
