This project needs a wide variety of contributors to make it successful. Scientists, experts in the field and of course people willing and able to contribute towards funding for the project.

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/Ha or ($90/ha), you can aid us in ensuring that this monumental project will be successful.
