Natural Resources Wales have cut the £12,000 annual funding they provide for the ongoing Guillemot monitoring study on Skomer Island. This is a hugely important study, and gives valuable insights into seabird life and what affects their populations. Not only is it a shame to end such a long-running (and therefore valuable) data set, but the cut couldn't have come at a worse time, considering the huge impact the recent storms have had on seabird populations (current death toll 25,000 and rising).
This is a very bad decision on the part of Natural Resources Wales, and we'd like to see it amended.

    This seems like a small amount of money in the scheme of things. In contrast, this data and the conservation it supports, is priceless.

    We need to lead the conservation of this planet. That means being a role model for the rest of the World. A budget cut of £12,000 - give me a break!
