Document Description
The USFWS has prepared a Final EIS addressing the eradication of introduced, invasive house mice from the South Farallon Islands within the Farallon Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Eradication invasive house mice is expected to benefit native seabirds, plants, amphibians, and terrestrial invertebrates and will help restore natural ecosystem processes on the islands. The South Farallon Island National Wildlife Refuge is closed to the public. It is uninhabited with the exception of a small contingent of researchers from Point Blue Conservation Science who reside on the island to monitor wild life, take care of the facilities, and safeguard the island. The Final EIS is provided to the public for a 30-day wait period prior to making a decision on the project. The 30-day wait period is not a second public review.
