Eradication Projects


Point Reyes National Seashore, California
: Conducted a Park-wide non-native deer (Fallow and Axis deer) eradication program.  We first implemented an EPA pivotal study using the GonaCon vaccine on 80 female Fallow deer.  Deer were then live-trapped followed by euthanasia to reduce large group sizes.  We then removed deer using ground and aerial shooting techniques during the day and at night.  Some deer then were captured from the ground and from a helicopter using a net gun and dart rifle to serve as Judas animals.  Finally, Fallow deer were captured and sterilized using tubal ligations and ovariectomies (on females) and vasectomies (on males).

Santa, Cruz, California: Assisted in an island wide feral pig eradication program.  Pigs were removed using trapping, as well as ground and aerial shooting techniques.

Santa, Cruz, California: Implemented in an island wide turkey eradication program.  Turkeys were removed using trapping, as well as ground and aerial shooting techniques.

Catalina Island, California: Participated in an island wide feral pig and goat eradication program.  Feral goats were captured from the ground and from a helicopter using a net gun and dart rifle to serve as judas goats.  Pigs were live-trapped followed by euthanasia.  Feral goats and pigs were removed using ground-shooting techniques during the day and at night.
