Document Description
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to eradicate introduced, invasive house mice from the South Farallon Islands within the Farallon National Wildlife Refuge, California. Eradicating invasive house mice is expected to benefit native seabirds, plants, amphibians, and terrestrial invertebrates and will help restore natural ecosystem processes on the islands. Eradicating house mice would eliminate that last remaining invasive vertebrate species on the Refuge, enhacing the recovery of sensitive seabird populations on the islands. The South Farallon Islands National Wildlife Refuge is closed to the public. It is uninhabited with the exception of a small contingent of researches from Point Blue Conservation Science who reside on the island to monitor wildlife, take care of the facilities, and safeguard the island.
