Species Notes for this Location:
Rattus norvegicus was introduced to Canna Island about a century ago. They pose a threat to seabird colonies and the native woodmouse.
Management Notes for this Location:
Plans have been developed to eradicate Rattus norvegicus from Canna Island. 3500 warfarin bait stations will be laid along the sheer cliffs of the island.
Canna Island is the most remote of Scotland's "Small Isles", lying to the south of Skye.
Reduction in native biodiversity: Norway rats threaten the seabird populations of Canna Island, as well as the native woodmouse.
