Arial brodifacoum on the Galapagos Islands (2016)

"Summary: rat eradication resulted in prolonged presence of the anticoagulant rodenticide brodifacoum in exposed lizards, likely significantly contributing to the deaths of secondarily exposed raptors up to at least 773 days after bait application"

WOW 773 days.....the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary Trust want birds in after Christmas. Apparently Penny Fisher who is part of
 this study gave her ok for the poisoning of the sanctuary according to the Nelson Mail and the BWST. 

Our Brook lizards may not be a beefy as these guys are, but will still provide for poisonous food for someone.
