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 and the South African Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment (DFFE) are collaborating to rid the island of mice and restore it towards its once-pristine beauty. A special entity, the Mouse-Free Marion Non-Profit Company (NPC), has been established to implement the project.

The bait required to cover the island will alone cost upwards of R30 million. To help raise the necessary funds for this ambitious and crucial project, please would you consider sponsoring one or more hectares of land on Marion Island.

At R1000 per hectare (approximately US$70), you can help us ensure that this monumental project succeeds.
