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
The rubbish littered along the coasts and grassland was washed in by the recent storms, so the community have been working to clear it up. Today the group collected 25 bags from Troytown to St Warner's Cove.
Disposing of waste properly and helping to keep our beaches clean is one of the important things anyone can do to help our seabirds. Litter provides food and nesting material for rats as well as being a hazard for seabirds and other marine life.
