Today the project delivered games and seabird activities as part of St Agnes fete. 

Children and adults could play the 'storm petrel food chain game', the 'roll a 10p and rescue a seabird game', 'make a seabird badge', or 'make a sea anemone' - all whilst having fun learning about the seabirds and the project.

Some of the feedback from the visitors’ taking part in the activities was; 

'Interesting, fun, amazing!'

'The team were friendly and helpful'

'The storm petrel game is a great activity which encourages young and old to respect the seabirds and the environment' 

'The storm petrel game is really well done and shows the problem that the storm petrel and Manx shearwater have to overcome to survive'
