Project Isabela

In the 1990s, the Galapagos Conservancy launched Project Isabela, an all-out war against 250,000 goats in the Galapagos Islands to save the dwindling population of Galapagos tortoises. The mission involved snipers picking goats off from helicopters. The project was a success and ended up restoring the population of the tortoises.
