Coote & Loeve (2003) concluded that E. rosea was extinct in the wild on Huahine, strongly suggesting that the successful re-introduction of partulids into the wild on Huahine might be possible.Conservation actions in the wild may be limited to identifying and protecting populations of partulid snails that offer some possibility of persistence in the presence of Euglandina (Ó Foighil 2009). It can be found in the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Solomon islands, New Caledonia, Kiribati, Samoa, American Samoa and French Polynesia.

It was originally described as a ground-dwelling snail, only occasionally found in trees (Pilsbry 1946; Burch 1962; Meyer & Cowie 2011). Predatory snails such as the rosy wolf snail, Euglandina rosea, will attack slugs, and may account, in part, ... but it had a preference for native snail populations, so its use is discouraged outside its natural range. From 61 species to five: endemic tree snails of the Society Islands fall prey to an ill-judged biological control programme. 2008.

Euglandina rosea, common names the rosy wolfsnail or the cannibal snail, is a species of medium-sized to large predatory air-breathing land snail, a carnivorous terrestrial pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Spiraxidae. This is thought to largely be due to predation by the rosy wolfsnail. 24 of Mauritius' 106 endemic snail species have also become extinct. The rosy wolfsnail (Euglandina rosea), known also as the cannibal snail, is a large snail species which has been introduced to a number of countries as a biological control for the giant African land snail. comm., in Coote et al, 1999), could be a promising approach.

Small exclosures have been built in Hawai‘I and on Moorea (French Polynesia) to protect native tree snails from attack by Euglandina rosea. Two similar exclosures are currently being built on Oahu for other native tree snails. Range in Japan: Chichijima Island, Ogasawara: Origin: Hawaii: Date: 1960s: Route: Deliberate: as biocontrol agent for eradication of African land snail Achatina fulica. These predatory snails were originally introduced to Hawaii in an attempt to eliminate another invasive species, the giant African land snail, Achatina fulica.However, the introduced species also vigorously attacked the indigenous O'ahu tree snail. 2004). Predation by the introduced carnivorous snail. Wolf snails are are part of the mainly neotropic land snail family of Oleacinidae, whose area of distribution spread from Southern and Central America up into the South Eastern United States.Some species, though, also settled in the area of the Mediterranean. 1993.

Other: Since 1986 partulid snails have been the subject of an international breeding programme; the International Partula Conservation Programme manages a breeding programme for 25 species in 15 zoos worldwide. Between-island spread of Euglandina should be prevented by legislation. The rosy wolf snail is a of medium-sized to large land snail that feeds on other species of snails and slugs. Molluscs are a very diverse group, with at least 85,000 species named and estimates of up to 200,000 species occurring worldwide. It is also called the cannibal snail because at times it eats other rosy wolf snails and eggs. Based on laboratory behavioral studies of the effect of temperature on E. rosea movement, Gerlach (1994, in Ó Foighil 2009) hypothesised that an altitudinal refuge above 600 to 700 m would exist for Society Island partulids. The Rosy Wolf Snail was introduced from Florida in the 1970s in order to try and rid the islands of a previously-introduced alien species: the Giant African Land Snail. E. rosea has had a negative impact on native snail species in the countries into which it has been introduced. [2], Of the 400 snail species endemic to Hawaii, only 10 remain. Hickman, J. Murray & P.

The best known classes of molluscs are the Gastropoda (snails and slugs), Bivalvia (clams, oysters, mussels and scallops) and Cephalopoda (squids, cuttlefishes, octopuses and nautiluses). E. rosea is now legally considered to be a noxious species in French Polynesia; the introduction of live specimens and their transport from one island to another is forbidden (Meyer 1998).

Clearly public education about the French Polynesia’s precious natural fauna and the dangers posed to such fauna by carnivorous biological control agents could help to reduce the likelihood of Euglandina being purposefully translocated to new islands. Threat(s): Currently, the greatest threat to terrestrial snails in Hawaii has been the exotic rosy wolfsnail. Beyond the alien invasion: a recently discovered radiation of Nesopupinae (Gastropods: Pulmonata: Vertiginidae) from the summits of Tahiti (Society Islands, French Polynesia).

This helped me set up an enclosure for my four baby snails! In G. Sherley (ed.) The future for some of French Polynesia’s partulids may not be as bleak as once thought; according to recent studies relatively high genetic diversity is represented among living taxa and it may still be possible to preserve a representative sub-sampling of Raiatea and Tahiti’s tree snail diversity (Lee et al. 2003. They also inhabit nearly all ecosystems. Certain species have suffered extinction due to the introduction of a carnivorous snail species, the rosy wolf snail (Euglandina rosea).Originally from North America, these predatory snails were released on the island to combat the giant African snail (Lissachatina fulica). E. rosea contributed to the extinctions of endemic Partula tree snails in French Polynesia; the snails are widely distributed on most of the high islands of the tropical Pacific, except for the Hawaiian Islands (Murray et al. A good relationship between the Pacific Island Land Snail Group (PILSG) and the French Polynesian government authorities has developed, and joint initiatives for conservation and research are being planned (Coote et al.

Education and Knowledge: Despite the lack of evidence supporting Euglandina as a successful biological control agent and despite the abundant evidence of their negative predatory impact on native snail fauna, carnivorous snail introductions continue (Cowrie 1992). The terrestrial snail fauna consists of 11 families, most of which have suffered considerable extinction. The rosy wolfsnail has a light brown elongated shell and a light grey or brown body. The native species mentioned seem especially vulnerable to heightened levels of predation because of their extremely slow rate of reproduction (Cowie 1992; Hadfield et al. Research and Knowledge: Further research into the biology of E. rosea, and particularly its population dynamics, needs to be carried out.
