We need YOUR help to protect our important seabird heritage.

  • Together we can keep these islands ‘rat-free’.
  • Rats are the biggest threat to breeding seabirds on the land. Please report any signs of rats on the uninhabited islands, St Agnes and Gugh, or on your boat. Call 01720 422153.
  • It is only through the active involvement of islanders and visitors alike that Scilly’s seabird heritage will be safeguarded and have a brighter future.
