From the Field: Eradicating nutria from Chesapeake Bay marshes



February 02, 2012

A team of wildlife professionals is on a mission to eradicate the destructive, invasive rodent nutria from the Chesapeake Bay’s marshes. Steve Kendrot, wildlife biologist with the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), leads us on a journey through an Eastern Shore marsh to find signs of nutria, and explains why it’s so important for local landowners to support the eradication project.
