The Society considered Puffin Island, just off the coast of Anglesey, as 'worthy of preservation' and proposed it as a potential nature reserve. Today, it has a number of conservation designations including as a Special Protection Area (SPA) for its important population of breeding cormorants. It also supports many other seabirds including puffins, black guillemots, herring gulls and eider ducks. Unfortunately, introduced brown rats have been heavily predating on the ground-nesting birds, but measures are underway to control their populations. This site is privately managed.
