Sarah Havery will be sorely missed, but we wish her the best of luck as she heads off to lead a team of conservationists on an island in Antigua. The project based on the island of Crump will carry out island restoration work, removing rats to save snakes and seabirds.

Sarah explained all about the Caribbean project to St Agnes School and how the two projects will work together to learn about why the seabirds and Scilly shrew are so important on Scilly and why the racer snake and seabirds are so important on the island of Crump.

Good luck Sarah, we can’t wait to hear all about when you visit St Agnes again in summer! Thanks for all your hard work.
