Still In Progress!

We aim to rid South Georgia Island of invasive rodents and so increase by millions the numbers of birds living there.

The baiting phases are complete, the two year monitoring phase is beginning. To declare the island free we must do what no one has yet tried and look for rodents over a place 100 miles long, with mountains 3,000 meters high. Read the Ratwatch and fundraising Oct 27th 2015 update (.pdf document)
