Saving a remote island's birds--by getting rid of its mice

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2018/12/eradicating-mice-to-save-birds-on-remote-marion-island/


A scalped gray-headed albatross chick on sub-Antarctic Marion Island gruesomely conveys the threat seabirds face from invasive species. For reasons not entirely understood, mice brought to the island by sealers 200 years ago have begun feeding on birds at night. With no instinctual fear of this new danger, a bird will sit passively while mice nibble into its flesh, until it succumbs days later.
