Today the project delivered two workshops to the community of St Agnes and Gugh - how will the islands remain rat-free post 2017 when the project ends?

We had great discussions, at a time in the project when we still have 18 months of delivery, it was really positive to get such good feedback at this stage. Thanks to everyone who came along and also to RSPB's Damon Bridge who inspired us with presentation of other RSPB projects across the country and how the RSPB can support communities and projects just like ours!
