Seabird Task Force Volunteers’ delighted to be part of the project

After the first week of assisting the project, the full team of volunteers have been explaining why they are happy to be part of the project.

Project Manager, Jaclyn Pearson has spent this first important week of baiting with the WMIL team and the volunteers, and has been interviewing the volunteers for the local radio station to find out why they have volunteered for the project and what it means to them.  Volunteer Lyndsey Death says ‘ I am so happy to be spending the winter on the islands gaining skills and learning about island restoration projects. The project is so well organised, I am really enjoying  it.”
