Skomer Island is a firm favourite for many travellers, birders and families. Many of you who have visited the island will know that we have a camera feed from Skomer Island into the Lockley Lodge visitor centre. Unfortunately these cameras are on their last legs and won't last another season so we are hoping to replace them.

We use the cameras for the following:

  • To show visitors what wildlife is on the island at that time, which encourages them to visit and helps to bring in revenue to The Trust.
  • To show people who might be slightly less mobile than others what the steps are like once they get off the boat onto the island.
  • To show people what the landing bay looks like when the boats are unable to take visitors over to the island.
  • The Dale Sailing skippers also use the camera feed as one method to decide how safe it is to take visitors over to the island that day.

Unfortunately The Trust doesn't have any spare funds available to replace these cameras so we are asking you lovely people if you might be able to help by either donating funds or providing appropriate equipment.

If you can help, please contact Rebecca via r.vincent@welshwildlife.org

 

Thank you!
