 The University of Exeter Year 2 Biological Sciences students today took part in a filed trip to learn about the project and island restoration in South West England.  The 26 students explained that they enjoyed learning about the project and hearing about the conservation work happening to save the seabirds on these islands. The two words they would use to describe the project were ‘community’ and ‘inspirational’ – we agree!
