Project Summary:
South Georgia will be free of mice for the first time since shortly after discovery by Captain Cook in 1775, and the likely spread of mice to other parts of South Georgia, due to the rapid retreat of glacial barriers, will be prevented. Mouse-inflicted damage to the island's native flora and fauna will cease; five ACAP-listed breeding species and many other vulnerable birds, including the endemic pipit, will be protected. Mouse eradication programmes on other UK Overseas Territories and beyond will be informed by the South Georgia operation, which represents a landmark in the global race against invasive alien species.
