Hugging Scilly's coastline, plants that are tough enough to thrive in this harsh environment can be discovered.
Scury grass, Darren Hart
These insect rich areas are a great place for birds to feed and nest. Eels feed in the ditches and edges of the scrapes. Amongst the reeds, flowers add splashes of colour.

Arable weeds and farmland birds thrive in Scilly's farmland, partly due to the traditional way fields are farmed.

Coastal cliffs and rocks
A place to discover what lies beneath the surface of Scilly, revealing its geological past. Despite being on the edge, a wide variety of wildlife is waiting to be discovered.
Bryher coast, David Mawer
A mobile system affected by the wind and tide. Specialist plants can be found here.
St. Martin's dunes, David Mawer
This is an area between high and low water. An extreme place where wildlife lives above and below the water, dependent on the tide and the weather.
St. Martin's shore
From rocky reefs to golden green seagrass meadows on white sand - the marine life of Scilly is unrivalled in vibrancy, diversity and health.
Walls and reefs with fish, Tim Allsop
There are some very special habitats in Scilly from coastal heathlands, maritime grassland, hedges and wetlands.
