Point Blue Conservation Science and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have partnered together to address one of the most important conservation projects in California. The Farallon Islands National Wildlife Refuge is one of our nation’s treasures, with significant populations of nesting seabirds, marine mammals, and native salamanders, insects and plants.

Over the past five decades, Point Blue Conservation Science, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and partners have worked to protect and restore the damaged Farallon ecosystem, which is threatened by climate change and non-native species, like the invasive house mouse. Today, the ecosystem on the Farallon Islands is severely out of balance, putting the survival of the islands’ threatened species and unique natural resources at risk. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s proposal to remove invasive house mice from the island represents one of the most comprehensive, rigorously researched plans of any ecological restoration project and will allow the islands’ sensitive ecosystem to recover from past human impacts and build resilience to the impacts of climate change.
