"Dogs that Saved Macquarie Island"
Issue date: 9th September 2015

Eleven dogs, mostly springer spaniels and Labrador retrievers, worked tirelessly to hunt and eradicate rabbits and rodents from Macquarie Island. And they have now been recognised with a series of Australia Post stamps. Dog handler Nancye Williams said the island owed its pest-free status to the dogs. “Macquarie Island would not have its rabbit and rodent-free status without these dogs,” she said. “To see them on the stamps I think it’s a lovely and worthy tribute.”
