IF YOU SEE A SNAKE - KILL IT - AND IMMEDIATELY CALL 28-SNAKE.
The Brown Tree Snake program actively works to prevent the introduction of this invasive species to the Island's. Personnel and inspection teams are located on Tinian, Rota and Saipan. Saipan houses a kennel where dogs are trained to locate Brown Tree Snakes. The port of Saipan is also installing a quarantine area for vessel shipments (boats and cargo) that have the potential for unknowingly transporting snakes.
All contractors doing major consturction, excavation, or earth moving are required to have a FREE inspection of their site and equipment by DFW's BTS staff.
