SenesTech (NASDAQ:SNES) has launched a collaborative effort with Island Conservation, a non-profit organization, to deploy ContraPest in environmentally sensitive areas to eliminate invasive species such as rats.
The bait stations and the ContraPest will be sold by SenesTech, which will plan the treatment and support the deployment of the fertility control to reduce and then control the rodent population.
This opens a new avenue of revenue generation and the expansion of operational know how that should benefit SenesTech in working in other environmentally sensitive areas.
Island Conservation has been involved in many projects in partnership with local communities, government agencies and other conservation groups that have worked on saving critically endangered local species at many locations around the world. It has deployed teams protecting over 900 populations of close to 400 species on over 50 islands.
Traditional methods have involved dropping tons of chemical anti- coagulant agents on islands, hoping to kill the rodents without harming the indigent population of birds and other mammals. This causes problems of disposal of residual toxicants and possible harm to other species.
