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
We started by looking at the kittiwakes and their chicks on the cliffs, using a telescope on the quay. Then we learned about how seabirds were valuable in the Bronze Age for food, oil and feathers. Although seabirds are often accessible and nest in large numbers, the abundance is seasonal, so we also talked about how food might be stored over the winter.
