The Gibraltar National Museum has a vibrant Natural History Department which is headed by Dr Stewart Finlayson. The main focus of the Natural History research being undertaken revolves around the reconstruction of the ancient habitats and climates of Gibraltar, using the fossils recovered from Gibraltar’s caves and comparing them with the same species living today. This research programme has developed the new discipline of 4D Ecology which uses quantitative data gathered in the field today to reconstruct past worlds. A subsidiary project, that supports this research programme, photographs these species and habitats, offering a visual perspective of these ancient worlds.
A gallery of photographs taken by Finlayson Nature Photography accompanies this page. Finlayson Nature Photography is a non-profit group of wildlife photographers based in the Gibraltar National Museum. Their aim is to eventually photograph all living species and habitats which were once part of Gibraltar. Gibraltar’s rich wildlife has much to do with its varied landscapes, even today. The major feature now are its limestone cliffs and caves.
