Guam - The Department of Agriculture has started the process of relocating the endangered tree snails found at the Ylig Bridge. The agency confirms that 124 snails were moved to private property adjacent to the bridge, while more will be transferred there during rainy weather to give them a better chance of survival.
A follow-up survey will be conducted first though to monitor the progress of the snails currently at the property, owned by Arlene Bordallo, to ensure they are adjusting to the new environment. The discovery of the tree snails was made as officials are planning to reconstruct the Ylig Bridge to accommodate trash trucks going to the forthcoming Layon landfill.
