Foulney Islands main conservation feature is its breeding terns which travel vast distances to nest on the island's shingle banks. The main species are Arctic and little tern, although up to four species have bred on the nature reserve in the past. Other breeding birds include ringed plover, oystercatcher, eider, skylark and meadow pipit. The island has a resident warden during the breeding season to monitor and protect the birds.

There are a number of footpaths around the reserve.
