Searches for sparrows took place in June '02, April '03 and Feb '04 and none were found. The population is now believed to be extinct (Dickey, 2004 in Varnham, 2006).
An informal monitoring of the expanding population is in place. Eradication is recommended before it spreads to other parts of Tortola and to other islands (Petrovic, 2003 in Varnham, 2006).
