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
"I first came to the Ises of Scilly in 1966 and have returned very year since, and most years in June. I can remember hearing the calls of Manx sheawater on the way back to my accommodation from the Turk's Head many years ago. It would be absolutely fantastic if these magical birds could once again prosper on the these islands along with storm petrel as well. Any increase in the seabirds on the islands has got to be a good thing. Good luck with the project."
