Our mission is back on
Right now, we’re back on Gough Island to save Tristan albatrosses from extinction. Many of the seabirds that nest here are under threat, but with your support today, millions more chicks could survive each year. Tackling this emergency in the middle of a pandemic has proved even more complex and costly. We urgently need your help today to save one of the last truly wild places left on earth.
Stopping extinction in a pandemic
Keeping our 50-strong team of experts safe and taking supplies to such a remote island has created a substantial funding gap. But Gough’s defenceless wildlife needs our help now more than ever. In 2019-2020, all of the MacGillivray’s prion chicks on our monitored nesting site died. Watch our film now to see how your support today can save one of the world’s greatest seabird islands.
Giving helpless chicks a chance
Tragically the pandemic forced us to postpone our mission last year, leaving albatross, prion, petrel and shearwater chicks vulnerable to attack by mice. Invasive, non-native mice are literally eating these defenceless chicks alive. We have to stop this now. Your donation can help us remove every last mouse from Gough Island, saving seabird chicks for generations to come.
