Isles of Scilly Grazing and Access Working Group
Public Statement, September 30th 2010

┬áThe Isles of Scilly Grazing and Access Working Group was formed in May 2010 to address issues raised by petitioners against conservation grazing by the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust. The group comprises representatives of local organisations and the islands’ community.

The group is aware that some of the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust conservation grazing equipment has recently been damaged. The Isles of Scilly Grazing and Access Working Group has unanimously resolved to issue a public statement condemning criminal behaviour, including that which has recently been directed towards the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust. The group’s unified voice is that the well-being of Scilly’s environment and community is damaged by such criminal behaviour.
