Scientists are looking at traps as a better way to kill the beautiful but brutally destructive invaders with huge appetites than shooting them one by one with spearguns. Traps could also be used at depths spearfishers cannot reach. (Alexander Fogg/Destin – Fort Walton Beach via AP)

This January 2020 photo provided by the Center for Biological Diversity shows construction on a new border wall in the wetlands at the San Bernardino National Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Arizona. The federal agency in charge of the refuge warned for several months that pumping water to build a border wall would decimate the habitat, and correspondence obtained by two environmental groups shows that U.S. Customs and Border Protection ignored most of those warnings and pulled water from wells so close to the refuge that some of its ponds went dry.
