New Fundraising Appeal

Scottish Seabird colonies are being impacted by an outbreak of a highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). To assess the scale of the impact of this disease on the Bass Rock Northern gannet colony we urgently need to raise additional funds to support survey work, including drone flights and image assessments, over the island this summer and to monitor the recovery in future years. On islands such as Craigleith and the Lamb it will help us establish an early detection method for threats to our seabirds, including diseases and/or invasive species, enabling us to respond quickly.

Any funds raised above the target will support our continuing conservation activities and research on local islands that help increase the resilience of seabird colonies to human pressures.

Avian Flu Appeal
