G3 Conservation Corps digs into Biosecurity with the DoAg
The Guam Green Growth Conservation Corps dug in and learned about protecting our island and our resources as they spent the week with the biosecurity team at the Department of Agriculture.
The members of the corps got a closer look at the invasive species that have made their way to our island and continue to cause destruction in the local and native landscape including the infamous Rhino Beetle and the Brown Tree Snake.
For many, this was the first time they were given this crash course in biosecurity and had the opportunity to see the pests up close and personal.
The team learned about prevention of invasive species, how to collect them and how the Department tracks traps and deals with creatures caught in them.
