Ile Vache Marine Bird Habitat Restoration Project Reconnaissance

In January a habitat restoration specialist, Grant Harper, visited the island of Vache Marine in the Chagos Archipelago as a precursor to a Darwin Initiative funded project to eradicate invasive rats in order to allow sea birds to return and nest there. This short video was shot during his visit and outlines the approach of the project. The eradication is due to be undertaken in August 2014.
