HELP CLOSE THE FUNDING GAP

An invasive mouse eradication is planned for July 2020—but only if we secure the remaining funds necessary. We have received a $100,000 1:2 challenge grant to match your donations of $5,000 to $25,000; you will release $10,000 dollars for every $5,000 you donate!

In recent years, scientists have documented an epidemic that threatens to spread through the albatross colony, mice are eating chicks, attacking adult albatrosses on their nests. Albatrosses are totally vulnerable to this threat as they are hard-wired to incubate their eggs at all costs.

The mouse eradication operation is urgent but has been delayed until July 2020—in part because of a $1 million funding gap.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service plans to remove the invasive mice with Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument managers, Island Conservation, and other partners.
