Macquarie Island Pest Eradication Project
On Friday 28th July the Macquarie Island Pest Eradication team (13) made their way back to station from various locations across the island. The hunters and their dogs had been away from station for five weeks and were keen to meet up, have time to relax, wash clothes and reacquaint themselves with family, partners and friends back home.
During their week on station the team spent only one day working, half of that day involved a familiarisation training session on rope rescue techniques, led by SAR (Search and Rescue Leader) Mango, with the remaining part of the day attending an end-of-month meeting with Pete (MIPEP Team Leader).
After a very social time in ‘town’ the team departed station on Friday 3rd August and won’t be seen again until the end of the month.
