Henderson Island appeal

Introduced rats on Henderson Island have been killing over 25,000 petrel chicks every year. Thanks to our generous supporters, we raised £1.5 million and poison was dropped onto the island by helicopters flying from the deck of a boat.

Seven months later, a single rat was reportedly seen on the island. This is of serious concern to us and all our supporters, so we're planning an immediate expedition to Henderson Island to check the situation. We will not give up - we must safeguard the future of the island's unique species.

Your gift today will help us protect this very special place.
