We need YOUR help to protect our important seabird heritage

The project’s ‘Seabird leaflets’ have so far been a great success. Visitors are using them to identify and learn about which seabirds they are seeing on their way over to the islands from the Scillonian III ferry and then when walking or boating around the islands. 

Pick up a leaflet on your way to Scilly from the airports or the Quay in Penzance, and learn how you too can help to protect our important seabirds.
