The commission said the snake hunt is intended to reduce the population of the invasive species and educate the public about the threat the snakes pose to native wildlife and the ecosystem, WPEC-TV, West Palm Beach, Fla., reported Friday.

Researchers said another goal of the hunt, which ends Feb. 10, is to collect information on the pythons' population and habits in the area.

More than 1,000 people have taken part in the hunt.
