2016 Brown Treesnake Rapid Response Team

2016 Brown Treesnake Rapid Response Team

Detailed Description

The Rapid Response Team contains members from multiple groups and agencies. There is a core group of biologists stationed on Guam that are highly adept at finding and capturing BTS. These biologists will deploy within 24-48 hours of a snake sighting to the island the snake was seen on. The RRT also contains members from cooperative groups and agencies on the Federal, State, and Local level stationed on islands throughout the Pacific region. Having trained members on snake free islands that may receive BTS is key to mounting a fast and effective response to snake sightings. These members help verify snake sightings, interview the person(s) that saw the snake, and begin the initial response before the Guam group arrives.
