All-natural, dry-roasted wild nutria jerky (4 oz). Ingredients: Nutria
Nutria, an invasive species, are one of the biggest culprits of wetland loss in Louisiana and other US wetlands. These semi-aquatic, otter-like mammals are responsible for the destruction of approximately 100,000 acres of critical marsh habitat between 1993 to 2001.
According to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Nutria have gnawed through an estimated 80,000 acres of marshes since arriving seven decades ago. When Nutria eat marsh, they destroy the very infrastructure that holds wetlands together putting the entire ecosystem at risk.
