Do you know the island faces a most dangerous threat today? And it’s not a hurricane.

In the paper this past week there was a report of a meeting which took place last fall between federal, state, and leading experts regarding what to do about one of the most dangerous threats to the island, that of the vicious mongoose should it find its way to our shores — or if in fact it has and if so, what outcomes would result to the current environment.

Authorities are concerned and over 50 experts met last fall on Kauai to determine a plan of action regarding how to respond to this invasive species.

In this episode find out what they know, if there has ever been a mongoose seen or caught here, and what should be done going forward to protect the ecology of the island.
