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
Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust Rangers and volunteers were today trained how to undertake biosecurity measures, surveillance and incursion response to keep the islands free of rats. We learnt how to set out a monitoring grid around a potential incursion site, how to carry out monthly monitoring checks and what to do in the event of a rat being sighted. More training will be provided soon to refresh the training for the local community volunteers.
