Donate please for daily diary tags
BREAKING NEWS – JUNE 17th
The Foundation is raising funds for 10-15 Daily Diary tags to be placed on Rockhoppers and Yellow Nosed Albatrosses to follow those that have survived the oil spill. We have no idea how many Rockhoppers will return in August – how many made it through the oil following their molting season and moving out to feed. It is not looking good. Salvage crews are due in late July – guaranteed to spread further oil and byproducts into the water – the Rockhoppers swam out through the oil and will be coming back through it to reach their breeding grounds on Nightingale. Over 98% of those brought to Tristan for cleaning have perished.
The tags are expensive $3,000. each. But they are extraordinary and will follow the wildlife 24/7. Help in any way you can. Thank you so much for your support.
