ACHIEVING BALANCE

Achieving Balance chronicles the removal of the Black Rat from Anacapa Island and reveals the profound results of recovery that follow on the island ecosystem.

Produced for web/YouTube and the Channel Islands National Park Visitor Center, the video documents the restoration of Anacapa Island after the removal of the black rat, which was predating on threatened seabirds. A group of non-profit, government, and educational organizations came together to remove these non-native predators in 2002.  The film reveals some of the surprising, positive results ten years after the removal of the rats.
