Penguin Island Restoration a Success!

Penguin Island, Western Australia, is now free of invasive rats. 

Western Australia’s Department of Parks and Wildlife has announced a conservation intervention project to remove invasive rats from Penguin Island is complete. The invasive rodents had been off-setting the ecosystem’s balance; now that the island is free from this unnatural pressure, native plants and wildlife can recover. Environment Minister Albert Jacob said:

Black rats are one of the world’s most widespread and destructive invasive animal species.The rats were attacking birds, eggs, penguin chicks and native skinks.
