The role of WS in endangered species protection and restoration on Guam continues to develop. In cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Guam Division of Aquatic and Wildlife Resources, and the U.S. Navy, WS is helping to protect the remaining 500 endangered Mariana gray swiftlets which reside in three caves located on Navy property. Efforts to protect the Mariana gray swiftlet has resulted in the island's population now at its greatest recorded level. Another endangered species project is being conducted in cooperation with Andersen Air Force Base (AAFB), the Department of Defense, and WS National Wildlife Research Center. WS operates approximately 1,000 traps to remove brown tree snakes, an invasive species, from AAFB. The work supports efforts to recover native Guam wildlife including Federally endangered Mariana crows and Guam rails.
