Help us spread the word

We believe raising awareness is the key to biosecurity. Once we all know how to carry out simple measures to ensure our bags and cargo are stowaway free, the safer our seabird islands will be.

Below you will find interpretation materials we have in place around the UK. Some of these are in place at ports, harbours and airports. Poster and leaflets can be found in the visitor centres and amenities on islands and at mainland departures points.

If you have a business or community space on an island, or at mainland departure points and you could display posters or provide leaflets, please do send us an email, head to ‘contact us’.

Together, we can all protect seabird islands from invasive predators.
