Under the boardwalk
When the nesting seabirds have gone and the Islands close for the winter, the important conservation work continues. Boardwalks need to be repaired and replaced, there is always painting and decorating to do, and the Chapel and Tower are shut down for the winter.
The science part
While the Farnes are of course an important visitor attraction, their status as a Marine Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest means much of our work is dedicated to the study of this crucial habitat.
A certain ring to it
Here on the Farnes we are keen to monitor the many species that stop by to nest, feed and create such a magical spectacle. Whether it is ringing birds to track their movements, using GPS to tag seals, or simply spotting and recording rare appearances by unusual visitors; our team are always working to manage and maintain this incredible environment.
Support our work
You can support the important work on the Farne Islands by visiting our shop in Seahouses or with a donation to the National Trust. As a charity, the National Trust relies on supporters to help fund the work we do on the Farnes to manage and protect this precious habitat.
