WAR in the Galapagos Islands

Rat Kill in Galapagos Islands Targets 180 Million

The unique bird and reptile species that make the Galapagos Islands a treasure for scientists and tourists must be preserved, Ecuadorean authorities say — and that means the rats must die, hundreds of millions of them.
The rat infestation has now reached one per square foot (about 10 per square meter) on Pinzon, where an estimated 180 million rodents reside.

The director of conservation for the Galapagos National Park Service, Danny Rueda, called the raticide the largest ever in South America.

I had no idea it was so bad. Good luck to those soldiers who work to destroy this enemy of the Galapagos! :gun:
