The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Point Blue Conservation Science have partnered together to restore native seabird populations on the islands, particularly the Ashy Storm-Petrel. Removing invasive house mice will provide safer breeding habitat for seabirds and other native animals. Once invasive species are removed from islands, island ecosystems can often recover quickly.
