A special place... The Isles of Scilly are one of only two places in England where Manx Shearwaters breed

We need YOUR help to protect our important seabird heritage
Today, project supervisor Paul St Pierre delivered a talk about the project to Cornwall College, Newquay Campus, environmental sciences department. They learnt about island restoration work and the importance of this project.
This weekend Biz from WMIL and Project Manager Jaclyn have been speaking to everyone in the community to check they have what they need to carry on good waste management practices.
'Seabird task force volunteers' Sarah Havery and Jack Roper took the school children on a field trip to look for signs of animals on the tracking tools around the islands.
WMIL and the 'Seabird Task Force' start the second phase of baiting with the second redenticide.
Any bait stations which were disturbed by the storm are now back in place and the sun is making an appearance.
New Seabird Task Force volunteers arrive on St Agnes to assist the project. Their flights were delayed due to high winds but they are in good spirits!
Storms hit St Agnes, everyone is safe but some bait stations have been dislodged so the team has been spending time this week fixing the stations and securing some away from coastal areas
Today the project was visited by the Joint Advisory Group on Scilly, project partners and our funder LIFE
Jaclyn and 'Seabird Task Force Volunteer' Sarah delivered a Christmas educational session to St Agnes School.
Seabird Task Force Volunteer Lindsey Death thanks the project for a great experience as she heads off to India for winter. Thanks Lindsey for all your hard work!
