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
This five year project ended in October 2017. The project is now in the ‘legacy phase’ keeping the islands rat-free to protect seabirds.
