Today we were visited by both our MEP Julie Girling and MP Derek Thomas to showcase how we are protecting seabirds in the South west.

We explained all about our Manx shearwaters and storm petrels, and how Marine Protected Areas will safeguard their marine environment and removing rats safeguards their chicks on land. We were joined by community members Sam from Troytown farm, John Peacock from St Agnes boating and Cllr Richard McCarthy. Thank you for sparing time to visit the project, and thanks for bringing the good weather!
