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
Today the project delivered a field trip to Cornwall College, New quay. Second Year students from Marine and Zoology Conservation Courses learnt about invasive species and how the project is protecting our important seabirds.
Thanks to all the students who joined us. We heard Manx shearwaters calling back from burrows, and saw many other species which may be benefiting from the removal of rats including caterpillars - which linked back to being a supportive food source to the cuckoo we heard on Gugh! As part of their courses they learn about ongoing biosecurity on islands and now they know how we do it with an important tool – chocolate wax!
