Red-eared terrapin: Direct removal of adults
A study in 2003 in a pond at botanic gardens in Tortola, British Virgin Islands (Perry et al. 2007) found that using sein nets to trap red-eared terrapin Trachemys scripta adults and juveniles was not successful in eradicating the population. Twelve adults and approximately twenty juveniles were removed. Additional capture efforts removed further adults and juveniles in July and October 2004. Experimental methods were not available.
