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 Council of the Isles of Scilly Children’s Services ‘Holiday Club’ joined the project. We carried out a ‘seabird treasure hunt’. We found signs of nesting seabirds and other wildlife and carried out a beach clean to take away the plastic treasures and nets washed up on the beach as these items can harm marine wildlife. The children learnt how to use binoculars and said they had a great time learning all about the islands important seabirds. They are ornithologists in the making!
