Donate to the Gough Island appeal
The RSPB and Tristan Island Council want to restore Gough and save the threatened species from extinction, and have developed the Gough Island Restoration Programme.
We aim to save iconic species such as the Tristan albatross from extinction and restore a World Heritage Site before it is lost.
If we secure funding, we will implement a rodent baiting operation during the southern winter of 2019, with the outcome confirmed by monitoring through 2021 (two breeding seasons for mice). 2019 is the earliest feasible date for such an ambitious operation, as it requires an extensive lead-in time to secure all necessary contracts.
We need to raise £7.6 million before this project can proceed. Success will see this World Heritage Site secured for future generations, bring species back from the brink of extinction and allow habitats to recover naturally with little future intervention required.
With your help, we can raise the money needed. Together, we can ensure the future of the island's endemic species.
Otherwise you can make a donation over the phone. Please call our Supporter Services team on 01767 693 680, 9 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday. Thank you for your support!
