Biosecurity on the Farnes

We need your help looking after the Farne Islands. This special place is vulnerable to all sorts of nasty invaders, so here's some advice to make sure you don't bring any with you!

Home to 200,000 seabirds and over 6000 seals, the Farne Islands are a National Nature Reserve, internationally important for their wildlife. We can't protect this place without your help; when we welcome you to the islands, we have to make sure you are not bringing any unwelcome visitors with you! For example rats or invasive plants could decimate the wildlife. 

Please have a read through our Bio-security guidelines and our Sea Bird Smart leaflet before you visit to help us look after this special place.
