Macquarie Island

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macquarie_Island

A large island in the southwest corner of the Pacific Ocean, it is currently a world heritage site. There are colonies of seals and penguins and many birds. It officially belongs to Australia, there is a small but permanent base of the agency taking care of Australia's stations and territories.

Potential:

There is also a large number of introduced rabbits and rodents, that are messing up the ecological balance, creating erosion and eating up all the flora. The Australian government has decided to exterminate them and is undergoing preparations… it may need some volunteer help.

Note: several earthquakes have been recorded on the island and in the area. (See Wikipedia page for more information and sources.)
