Adopt a Scilly Species this Christmas!
Keeping Scilly Special
We all know that the Isles of Scilly are special. The beautiful landscapes and diverse wildlife are a joy to anyone lucky enough to live or work here, or who visits on holiday. We are determined to keep our islands special for everyone and for wildlife, encouraging species to thrive and protecting our wild habitats.
What we do
We look after around half of the Isles of Scilly, making sure that Scilly stays special. We help wildlife thrive and provide opportunities for us all to enjoy nature. We exist to protect the islands’ unique heritage, particularly its native wildlife, ensuring that our environment can be enjoyed by all. As well as managing around 700ha of land, we monitor and conserve important species, from seabirds and seals to bats and rare plants. We provide more than 85km of paths around ten islands, so that people can safely explore. We protect our local archaeology, including over 170 Scheduled Monuments, and we work with local people and visitors to make Scilly more sustainable.
