A few photos and videos from Redonda

I’m prepping for the next trip to check out a rat infested island in the Caribbean and it’s bringing back a bunch of memories from Redonda. A few members of the eradication team have put together some terrific videos and photo galleries and I just want to quickly highlight them here.

For some stunning pictures of the flora, fauna, and landscape of Redonda check out Ed Marshall’s gallery here. He’s a fantastic photographer so keep poking around at some of his other trips (and maybe buy a print!).

And for an even more immersive look, watch Thea “the terrific” Eldred’s fantastic video from her time climbing the rock faces of Redonda to set rat traps in some of the most unreachable corners of the island.



The shot that sunk my GoPro

The Oru Kayaks have been so helpful lately – I don’t think we could have done this without them! I think we’ve used the kayaks almost every day for the last two and a half weeks, and last week they took the team to seven islands in seven days!

I’ve really enjoyed trying to get some footage of the kayak in action. Here you see a hull-eye view of the Mediterranean. Later that day I went back out and rigged up the GoPro to get more of this footage and promptly lost the camera to the bottom of the Mediterranean. Argh. So, enjoy this video! It’ll likely be the last of the underwater shots of the summer.
