Ship rats (Rattus rattus) on the three small islets in the Northern Sporades National Marine Park, in Greece, had been implicated in the predation of at least 30% of eggs and nestlings of Eleonora’s Falcon Falco eleonorae.
Eradication of black rats on the three islets commenced during March 2005. 150 kg of the anticoagulant rodenticide Brodifacoum-based BRODIRAC was hand broadcast at bait stations on the islets in March 2005, before the falcons had returned from their winter quarters in Africa. More than 18 months later, there is no evidence rats survive on the 15 ha Lagofytonisia islets which have been declared rat-free. The project was carried out as part of an EU-LIFE project to improve conservation measures for the Eleonora’s Falcon
A second rat eradication trial is now underway on the 4.5 ha Kastronisia islets in the Northern Sporades, which host up to 24 pairs of Eleonora’s Falcon, and suitable eradication sites across hundreds of Greeks islands in the whole Aegean are being identified and prioritised for future rat-removal (BirdLife International, 2007).
