Did You Know? - In an effort to increase Island visitation through hunting, mule deer were introduced to Catalina Island in the 1920s and 1930s.

Nonnative mule deer now in Catalina Island Conservancy's cross-hairs. ... Now, nonnative mule deer are in the cross-hairs. The mule deer — whose population now stands at about 2,400 — is the most destructive invasive species left on the island, situated 22 miles south of Palos Verdes Peninsula
