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
Huge thanks to Martin Harper and Pam Davis for visiting and volunteering on the project. We met lots of community members, delivered talks at the local ‘bird logs’ and a walk for the 'Walk Scilly' event. We also met the partners and set up wider rat monitoring tools on other islands. Thanks for all your input and come and see us again soon.
