Now that humans are a minority on these islands, should we be regarded as vulnerable and in need of special protection? Or does the danger that our recession will reduce food waste and thus threaten the well-being of the rats mean that they are "at risk" and we should be taxed to subsidise them? Finally, if you are a politician, how would your answer differ if rats had the vote?
