who we are

We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization in the USA dedicated to raising funds for the conservation of the sub-Antarctic Island of South Georgia.


Our purpose is to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of the island and return South Georgia to the incredibly rich and biodiverse island it once was.
FOSGI works towards redressing the historic environmental damage created by invasive species

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 update document
