 'Seabird Task Force'

The 'Seabird Task Force' volunteers set straight to work ensuring the islands are 'rat-free ready' in the run up to baiting. The community have spent the summer having beach cleans and a special ‘apple day’ clearing and juicing apples to remove this food source for rats, the volunteers are now completing the process over the last week before baiting.
