It was an inspirational visit and we all learnt lots. Biz and the team from WMIL were awarded the winter rat removal contract, so we know the islands are in good hands.

We left the wonderful team after assisting the start of setting up the grid of 1000+ bait stations and we look forward to hearing all about their progress to safeguard the seabirds of these amazing islands. Thanks to everyone’s hospitality
