minty3 writes: The Alaskan island formerly known as Rat Island, now named Hawadax Island, has successfully eradicated the invasive Norway rats after a five-year conservation effort, the Associated Press reports.

"We set the island back on its course to being a normal, productive and noisy island full of bird life," Randy Hagenstein, Alaska state director for The Nature Conservancy, said.
