Ascension : Ascension Island Conservation Department - Conservation Weekly

We have had a busy couple of weeks helping out with island tours for the MS Plancius and also the RMS St Helena, the tour groups were given a tour of the island, due to flood damage we were unable to tour the Green Mountain National Park.


 


Instead we took the groups to the Devilís Ash pit where they were given a talk by tour guides including John Bingeman and Neil MacFall on the history of the NASA Site, Green Mountain and the Letterbox Area. They were shown the indigenous land crabs.


 


Tracks


Due to the heavy rain falls, please take care when walking on dirt tracks, particularly the track heading to the Letterbox area, there has been a few washouts on the main foot path.


 


Turtle tours




Tours to see the turtles are run by the Ascension Island Turtle Group, with assistance from the conservation department. Please visit the Conservation Centre for more information or call 6359.


Please be advised that due to shortage of staff, the Conservation Office will not open every day, signs will be posted on the door when closed.


Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.


Thank you!


We would like to say a big thank you to John and Jane Bingeman for their help during their visit here on Ascension.    


Volunteers welcome. Please contact Olivia Renshaw or Natasha Williams. Ascension Island Conservation Department. Georgetown. Tel: 6359. Email:  olivia.renshaw@ascension.gov.ac
