Macquarie Island pest eradication
Rabbits damaging wildlife homes
Rabbits are damaging flora and fauna by trampling over wildlife and plants. Rabbits must be taken to another place to protect Macquarie Island from wreaking havoc. By using highly trained dogs to find the rabbits, they can be used for getting rabbits out from holes. It can be very problematic to eradicate rabbits from the island as they breed extremely quickly.
Macquarie Island sea level
Macquarie Island is situated in between New Zealand and Antarctica. RIght now, Antarctica is melting due to global warming. If this continues, the sea levels will rise. All the Royal Penguins and Elephant Seals will be long gone from the island, by the ice melting in Antarctica due to global warming.
You can do your bit to conserve Macquarie Island by planting a tree and using green reusable bags instead of plastic bags.
