Engineer Mark Parr in his electric Smart Car on 18 October 2007
Guernsey engineer Mark Parr sits in the Smart Car he converted to electric power. The car contains 8 batteries which currently give the car a range of 20 to 35 miles. In Guernsey it costs £0.26 to fully charge the batteries so the car costs about one penny per mile to run. The car can be plugged into any UK household 13 amp socket to charge up. Mark can currently do the petrol engine to battery power conversion for about £6000.00 but the price could come down with economies of scale. Mark has set up The Electric Vehicle Company in Guernsey Tel: +44 (0)1481 264434. FAX +44 (0)1481 268153 to do the conversions
Sealord photography's biodiversity images began with a focus on international commercial seafood species and the marine life of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, Great Britain.
Sealord photography has a growing collection of digital images covering climate change, the environment and sustainability issues.
Sealord photography also covers the Guernsey community and particularly the fund raising activities of Guernsey charities as part of the island's social sustainability.
The fish, shellfish and marine life images would not be possible if it were not for the generosity of commercial and recreational fishermen in Guernsey, and seafood suppliers at various trade shows in the USA, and wholesalers at Fulton Fish Market in New York City.
Many marine biologists have helped identify or confirm the identity of marine species photographed. These people have been mentioned when possible.
