Events and Blogs Blogs Working together for Scilly "A new partnership has been agreed between the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group and Scilly’s nature conservation charity the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust to help better protect the unique environment of the Isles of Scilly. The Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust will be working closely with the Steamship Group to help visitors to Scilly learn more about the incredible natural environment of the islands and improve understanding of its unique wildlife and landscapes." Our newly appointed Marine Ranger, Natalie Rance, will travel on board Scillonian III, two days a week throughout the season (April - September); offering passengers the opportunity to find out more about the Islands, our wildlife, places to visit and things to do whilst they are here as well as exploring the work of the Trust and how visitors' valuable support enables us to look after Scilly now and for future generations. Marine Ranger, Natalie, will also be on hand to share information regarding marine wildlife spotted along the way, as well point out places of interest around the coastlines of Cornwall and Scilly, as seen from Scillonian III. This work is kindly funded by DEFRA through the Isles of Scilly AONB "During 2018 more than 3000 people attended our events & activities" With the launch of our new website it is now possible to see what nature-based events and activities are on offer to both residents of, and visitors to, our Islands throughout the season. With nearly 100 different options available you can join the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust in discovering the wild nature of Scilly and help us to continue to protect and look after it! You can even book on, to ensure you don't miss out, before you arrive! In addition to this the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group will be launching a new facility on their website from April 2019, enabling passengers to make a voluntary donation towards the work of the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust when they make their travel booking. This move follows a recent survey of visitors to Scilly where 75% of respondents said they would like the opportunity to support the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust by giving a donation when they booked their transport. To find out more about our partnership head on over the Isles of Scilly Travel Website. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group, and in particular the staff members that have worked so hard to make this vision a reality; for responding to visitor feedback and enabling them to support our small, independent Island charity in this way.
