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
The Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust is the only local charity responsible for looking after the landscapes and historical sites of the islands. The Trust cares for 64 percent of the land, beaches and rocky foreshore that makes up Scilly (over 1700 hectares), including all of the uninhabited islands and most of the coastline of St Mary's, St Agnes, Bryher and St Martin's.
Our aims are to conserve and restore the landscapes and archaeological sites of Scilly whilst providing access and information to the public including keeping paths open, running events and activities and producing leaflets and interpretation boards. The Trust is managed by a Board of Trustees elected from its membership who provide the strategic direction for the development of the Trust. On a day-to-day basis the work of the Trust is delivered by a professional team of staff who are supported by a team of full-time volunteers from the mainland. Local volunteers also help with various tasks when needed such as land management or professional ecological, maritime and legal advice.
