RATS! Galapagos project takes the biscuit!
Tons of biscuits laced with poison have been discharged from a helicopter on the Galapagos Islands in an attempt to eradicate the rats which are endangering many species of birds and mammals on the islands. The most significant victims are the eggs and hatchlings of turtles and Galapagos giant tortoise. The bait will repulse all other wildlife so there is no danger to species such as marine iguanas, sea lions and the Galapagos petrel.
The project has been launched by the Galapagos National Park Service with assistance from other organisations including the Charles Darwin Foundation. Imaginative Traveller support the work of the Charles Darwin Research Station through raising funds and awareness of the Galapagos Conservancy. Only a visit to this unique and precious region of the world can make travellers aware of the importance of conservation in these fascinating and unique islands.
