Management Notes for this Location:
Rattus norvegicus was eradicated from Bottom Tussac in 2001, by Falkland Conservation. The eradication programme used brodifacoum (20ppm) bait stations, at a rate of 4.6kg/ha. Experimental "eradications" were conducted on five other islands (Harpoon, Horse, Rat, Calf Island, and Calf Islet) to test rat re-invasion ability. Please see Report on the Falklands Conservation Rat Eradication Project for details.
The vegetation of Bottom Tussac (8 ha) is primarily grassy.
