Isles of Scilly
Wildlife & Nature
Wildlife on the Isles of Scilly is like nowhere else on earth. The diversity of habitats makes it hugely biodiverse, and people come here to enjoy the unique species and beautiful landscapes. Some, like the Scilly shrew, dwarf pansy and orange bird’s-foot, are only found here in the UK. Enjoy wildlife on land and at sea, including migratory birds (in spring and autumn), seabirds like puffins and Manx shearwaters (in summer), grey seals, dolphins and whales. Admire majestic elm trees, examine thriving rockpools and inhale the heady coconut scent of gorse.
