Twelve Months on the Great Green Sponge: Living, exploring and hunting rabbits on a sub-Antarctic island

In 2012 Cameron Walker and his wife Kelly spent 12 months living on Macquarie Island, home to many migratory species including the endangered wandering albatross. They were part of a pest eradication project with the ultimate goal of eradicating rabbits, rats and mice.
