Teacher Beverley Tyson will be bringing an added extra when she turns up on St Helena: a husband who’s got the bug for museums.
Beverly is arriving in August to start work as an education officer, setting up a marine science programme to help make the most of the island’s extraordinary environment.
And husband Paul comes with his expertise as curator of the aquarium and the bug house at Liverpool’s World Museum.
Their local paper, the Rhyl, Prestatyn and Abergele Observer, says Paul might help out with some of Beverley’s marine science modules.
But when word of his museum work gets out, he might well be asked to get involved with work to protect St Helena’s multitude of endemic invertebrates.
Its 400-or-so unique species make it richer than the Galapagos Islands when it comes to bug life.
The newspaper reports that the couple will arrive on the island with sons Oliver, six, and Charlie, three.
Beverley told the paper: “I’m thrilled, as well as slightly blown away that I’ve landed my absolute dream job.”
