To celebrate World Albatross Day on the 19th of June, the Mouse-Free Marion Project are launching a raffle to raise the much-needed funds to conduct the mouse eradication operation planned for Marion Island.

Invasive House Mice have been harming the ecology and biodiversity of Marion Island and have resorted to eating chicks and even adult seabirds alive. By purchasing a raffle ticket for just R 100 you will be contributing to helping ensure a healthy future for Marion Island’s albatrosses and other seabirds, and stand a chance of winning one of two prizes.
