Nutria Eradication

The Chesapeake Bay Nutria Eradication Project was launched in 2002 to remove invasive nutria from Video: Maryland and other areas like the Delmarva Peninsula. This multi-agency effort declared success in 2022, and efforts are now focused on removing nutria from the Virginia portions of the Bay.
