Bats, Moths & the Moon

2nd April 2020
Ever fancied a nighttime stroll but not sure what to expect? Here is the perfect opportunity to discover Scilly in the dark!

Scilly is just as spectacular at night and here is your opportunity to discover a little more about our wildlife that ventures out after dark! With a focus on Bats, we’ll also be looking out for and listening for all the things that are much happier under cover of darkness; including Hedgehogs, Crickets, Moth, Beetles and more!

Join the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust Education Ranger on this fabulous evening excursion; it’s well worth staying up for!

Celebrating & valuing nature

8th April 2020

Join the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust for some entertainment, on the wild side, in this evening talk as part of Walk Scilly 2020. Let them introduce you to Scilly’s wild side, taking a tour of our Islands from the warmth and comfort of On the Quay.

Hear about the valuable conservation work which is taking place to protect everything you love about Scilly; from our regionally, nationally and internationally important breeding seabirds to our globally scarce Atlantic grey seals, our Scheduled Ancient Monuments and other archaeology to vital works taking place across “The Moors” to ensure those who live in, and visit, Scilly have fresh water to drink.

Coastal Walk & Sea-Watching

21st April 2020

There is so much to see around Scilly’s coastline, if you know what you’re looking for and take the time to really look! These excursions are fantastic for those who haven’t quite acquired their sea-legs or prefer viewing wildlife from terra firma!

Join the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust Education Ranger for a guided coastal walk out and around a part of Scilly. Looking for wildlife and Scilly treasures not just on land but at sea too; who knows what characters you might see?

Maybe the elusive Scilly Shrew, Green Tiger Beetle, our incredibly special Orange birds-foot? Possibly even Porpoise, Dolphins, Seals or our some of our internationally important breeding seabirds?
