Biosecurity for Scotland is working with partners NTS, NatureScot and the RSPB to protect Scotland’s internationally important seabird islands from invasive mammalian predators, such as rats. These predators aren’t native to seabird islands and can have devastating impacts on the seabird populations that call these islands home. Seabirds are already in decline, facing pressure from other sources such as overfishing, climate change and avian influenza. But we can protect our seabirds from invasive predators. Come along to hear more about biosecurity, what it is, why it’s important and how it is helping to save our seabirds.
