We decided the best way to celebrate Natura 2000 day was to carry out youth activities for the islands children. We took Blue class from Five Islands school to visit the seabirds (and puffins!) on a boat trip. Blue class were the lucky class as they wrote to Project Manager, Jaclyn Pearson an email to say how much they wanted to see and learn about seabirds as they were learning about habitats and lifecycles in their class. After seeing 12 species of seabirds, we joined St Agnes school for a picnic at the Agnes Island hall, and told them all about our trip, in return they told us about the project on St Agnes and Gugh and how they are monitoring for shrews and checking rat monitoring stations. We were then lucky to meet Probus school, Truro who were visiting St Agnes and tell them all about Natura 2000 Day too!
Tomorrow we are finishing our activity with a morning class with the nursery class at Five islands school, we are going to sing a song and get artistic!
Thanks to everyone who joined us to celebrate and support our amazing Natura 2000 sites!
