During September, the Department of Environment Forestry and Fisheries(DEFF) approved an International wildlife documentary series to be filmed on Marion Island. The film crew (Plimsoll Productions) together with scientists from South Africa left for Marion Island.

                                                                   The Marion Overwintering team organised a Boot Throw Competition and a farewell for the Plimsoll Productions film crew John and Joe.

                      Everyone will be looking forward to this documentary as it will show film makers and scientists collaborate to ensure the continuation of important research projects on Marion Island. There are significant, globally valued long-term science and conservation projects on Marion Island that were interrupted by the COVID19 pandemic and both parties viewed this as an opportunity for collaboration.
