Marion Island is the jewel in South Africa’s island crown.
This sub-Antarctic wilderness hosts an astonishing array of endemic species and charismatic marine megafauna, and is pristine.
Or nearly pristine…
Marion Island is in trouble, as are the nearly quarter of a million endangered seabirds that breed there.
HELP SAVE OUR SEABIRDS
BirdLife South Africa is collaborating with the Department of Environmental Affairs and the FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology to rid the island of mice and restore it towards its once-pristine beauty.
The bait required to cover the island alone will cost upwards of R30 million. To help raise the necessary funds, please would you consider sponsoring one or more hectares of land on Marion Island.
At R1000 (US$90), you can aid us in ensuring that this monumental project will be successful.
