Photos of our rodent detection dogs at work

They have been on South Georgia since the end of December, adding their sensitive noses to the search effort for rodents. In 2011, 2013 and 2015 over 1000 square kilometers were baited by the Trust thanks to the support of SGHT and FOSGI (Friends of South Georgia Island) donors, using helicopters to remove rodents from the island.

A rodent free South Georgia would give many birds like the pipit a better chance of surviving beyond the nest and in years to come repopulate the entire island.
