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
Spalding Associates comprise of a team of four ecologists who are carrying out ecological surveys of land birds, invertebrates, Scilly shrews, rabbits and vegetation to monitor and assess the impact of the project on these species. Data on the responses of different species to the rat removal operation will be highly useful in informing the development of future projects.
The team are training the project staff, volunteers and partners to carry out the monitoring programme, they have also been working closely with the community of St Agnes and Gugh.
