I have learnt so much about island restoration and had a great time on the project. This is a wonderful project which will make a real difference to the islands’ seabirds. The team have been so great to work with, it is one of the best volunteering programmes I have ever been part of and I look forward to returning to visit the returning seabirds and to know I was part of the practical conservation. I hope to stay pin touch with the team and assist in other island restoration projects in the future. Thank you
