KISC kicks off traveling mongoose campaign

LIHUE – This month, the Kauai Invasive Species Committee will kick off a traveling mongoose educational campaign.

The stand-alone display features a taxidermy Small Indian mongoose, as well as museum-quality mounted skulls  — cat, mongoose and rat. Kauai keiki will be able to see these specimens while learning about the threats mongooses bring to the island’s fragile ecosystem.  

Island School is the first stop on the display campaign. Throughout the year, the display will rotate around Kauai’s schools and libraries.

“Partnerships with the community are a valuable way to engage the public and an important component of KISC’s ongoing work,” Keren Gundersen, KISC project manager, said in a statement.
