Guam - University of Guam scientists gathered Wednesday to
discuss efforts to eradicate the brown tree snake. U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service coordinator for brown tree snake control Dr. Earl Campbell said, "I
guess one of the main things that's important to update is how successful are
the people here on the ground are at what they do and in this case we have
folks that are doing the brown tree snake control at the ports and airports
trying to stop snakes from getting off Guam."
Campbell adds that brown tree
snakes have killed off almost a dozen species of the island's birds. They are
also known to cause power outages.
