New volunteers Skip, Jack and Jack have joined the team this January. Their flight was delayed due to high winds, but all part of the logistics of island life! They look forward to the work ahead and learning all about Island restoration. 

Volunteer Jack Roper (pictured) says ' I look forward to working with the leading experts in this  field and also being part of the island community to assist them as part of this important project'
