Island Pressed  

Having never mentioned Bahrain* on the ISW before, I could not resist posting about this brief article from the Gulf Daily News. Too bad I missed out on the recent lecture by Abdulqader Khamis that the article refers to. Based on the summary, it sounds like Bahrainians need a little public outreach so they know it's not a good idea to release their pets into the wild: feral cats (Felis catus), red-eared slider turtles (Trachemys scripta elegans), and the Indian mongoose (Herpestes javanicus) are all causing problems. The Indian house crow (Corvus splendens) was also mentioned as a nuisance species.
