Two incredible Island Conservation staff members are joining the Million Dollar Mouse Project to save the Antipodes Islands! Island Conservation staff will be working with a team from New Zealand’s Department of Conservation to remove invasive mice which are impacting the invertebrates, vegetation and birds, and destroying the nutrient cycle on the main Antipodes Island. Following removal, the island and it’s native species will have the opportunity to recover.
