Sponsor a hectare

Sponsor a hectare of South Georgia

You can give a hectare of South Georgia back to its birds for only £90 / USD 145.

You will receive a signed certificate thanking you personally for your donation.

Only £90 / USD 145 can clear an entire hectare of the island from invasive rodents, allowing birds to nest safely without their nests and chicks being devastated.

Many generous donors have helped us to raise funds to bait 100% of the island and, we hope, have cleared it of the invasive rodents. We are almost there and we need your help to fund the monitoring of the island so we can ensure it is free.

With your support we hope we can declare that South Georgia is rodent free from 2015 onwards!

Don’t forget to Gift Aid your donation if you are a UK taxpayer by emailing SGHT

Or sponsor any number of hectares by donating through Paypal which gives you the option of Gift Aiding your donation:

The last of the Phase 3 rodent infested areas was baited on March 23rd 2015 and so the baiting of the entire island is complete. What we need to do now is to make sure that the rats are gone for good and we plan to do that by undertaking monitoring work in 2017/18  to make sure that happens.
