Albatrosses that have been attacked by mice on Marion Island. Horrific, but true
Many of you are probably aware that the HBC is affiliated to BirdLife South Africa. Some of you are also members in your own right. If you are, then please let John Saunders know.
Considering the very valuable work that BLSA does in terms of promoting and implementing bird loss mitigation, please consider going to their website and signing up as a member. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated and will go towards the vast amount of funding that BLSA needs.
As an example of the work they do, around R30m is now being raised to wipe out the rodents that are killing thousands of Albatrosses on Marion Island. It is a huge task and without this effort, there will only be more extinctions. Every little bit helps!
