Last week, we participated in a training on the correct use of our rodent traps, organized by the project LIFE VIDALIA. Within the scope of actions C6.1 “Restoration of seabird habitat on islets” and C8.2 “Control and eradication of invasive animal species in restored terrestrial habitats”, the LIFE IP AZORES NATURA project developed Biosecurity Plans for the islets of Praia and Baixo (Graciosa) and Ilhéu da Vila (Santa Maria). These plans stipulate the eradication of rodents potentially present on the islets, and the continuous surveillance in order to guarantee the early detection of new rodent arrivals on the islets and prevent complete invasions. Various types of traps are being implemented for this purpose, enabling continuous protection and causing minimal suffering to captured rodents.
