SAMS 1.1.1 In this research, we are evaluating the efficacy of culling efforts of invasive parakeets on the island of Kauai. We will collect measurements of culled animals, calculate age and sex ratio of animals removed, and calculate removal rate per effort. We will also develop a habitat suitability model, which will be used to predict future parakeet spread. This research is aimed to assist managers in Hawaii to control this invasive population.
