Join our live webcams from the middle of the seabird colony on Burhou looking back towards Alderney. Alderney Wildlife Trust and South East Grid for Learning Associates bring to you Living Islands: Live which follows the seabird season with two live webcams from the heart of the colony. On the webcams you will be able to see Puffins, different species of Gull and the odd rabbit or two hopping about. The Infra-red cameras mean you can catch glimpses of Storm Petrels at night too.
Living Islands: Live also runs an exciting cross curricular education project which will return in 2015. This offers schools the opportunity to bring the fascinating life of the puffin live into their classrooms. Using the dramatic lives of seabirds, this project links directly to the Keystage 1 & 2 curriculum, and is an effective way of teaching Science and Literacy skills, and promoting pupil creativity and confidence.

The Puffins have left the island for Winter. They will return to Burhou next Spring. In the meantime take a look at our Vimeo to see some of the past years highlights.
As an educational project LIVE is a truly remarkable way to inspire and connect children to nature.
LIVE provides children and teachers a window into a remote and uninhabited seabird island. It offers interaction between experts in the field, curriculum linked resources for a wide range of subjects, and through live web links enables schools to get involved with wildlife first hand.
LIVE brings British wildlife directly into the classroom!
