A special place... The Isles of Scilly are one of only two places in England where Manx Shearwaters breed
Under threat...The Isles of Scilly hold 3,000 fewer pairs of breeding seabirds than 25 years ago
We need YOUR help to protect our important seabird heritage
The winter rat removal operation has been completed. We now enter the exciting phase of the project ensuring the islands remain ‘rat-free’. Permanent stations housing monitoring tools will stay across the islands of St Agnes and Gugh, and the community next week begin training in how to spot rat sign, how to report it and how to prevent incursion. The workshops will run for the next 2 weeks.
