Warning issued over New Zealand invaders

Post by TomW on Sat Jan 28, 2012 1:24 pm

They may be small, but there’s a foreign army, helmeted and ready, marching upriver in Port Alberni — and one local environmentalist fears that nothing can stop them.

The force moving slowly up the Somass River estuary, comes from New Zealand and already numbers hundreds of thousands strong.

Rick Avis is a member of the Alberni Valley Enhancement Association, a non-profit group dedicated to the protection and restoration of watersheds in the Alberni Valley. He said he and his team are increasingly concerned about a slowly-moving wave of New Zealand mud snails (Potamopyrgus antipodarum), which appeared at the estuary and have been reproducing madly ever since.

Hmmm new members can't post links for 7 days oh well the Snails are bad!

They probably get noticed pretty quick if they are stuck to the side of a boat Cool

Maybe those freakishly large toads can eat these uninvited snails?
