Today’s photo of the week was taken at sunset on Antipodes Island.
Last week the ambitious mouse eradication project underway on Antipodes Island was completed ahead of schedule.
Mice are the only introduced predator on the island, which is home to endemic species such as the Reischek’s and Antipodes Island parakeets, Antipodes snipe and pipit, as well as thousands of seabirds and marine mammals.
The total eradication of mice can not be confirmed until a monitoring team visit the island in 2018.
