Invasives in the Scott Islands Marine National Wildlife Area – Current Status and Future Directions

Overview: The Scott Islands Marine National Wildlife Area covers 11,546 square kilometers of entirely marine environment located off the northwestern tip of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Invasive species such as rodents, mustelids and raccoons are one of the most pressing threats to the millions of seabirds that breed on the Scott Islands. In this webinar, David will summarize the current status of seabird populations on the Scott Islands, the invasive species present on the islands and the efforts underway to prevent future spread of invasive mammals to the Scott Islands.
