About this book

This is the story, in word and image, of the South Georgia Heritage Trust Habitat Restoration Project fieldwork that took place on South Georgia in three phases (in 2011, 2013 and 2015), baiting every inch of rodent-infested land on the island. Much work remains to be done in the coming years to check if every rodent has indeed gone and Reclaiming South Georgia has been created to raise funds for this crucial monitoring phase of the project. Every photo in Reclaiming South Georgia was taken by a member of Team Rat, and the story is a personal account by Project Director Professor Tony Martin of the challenges and triumphs involved in routing the furry invaders.
