January 2017 – Eradication of the Black Rat from the Island of Pianosa

The main operation to eradicate the black rat has finally begun on Pianosa. Hundreds of registered traps, in accessible to species other than the rat and just like the ones used in various towns and cities around the country, have been placed all over the island. Over the course of a few months, Pianosa will literally be reborn, given that, in the absence of one of the worst alien predators in the world, new life will be breathed into the native fauna and flora.
