Everglades invasion

As you may know the Florida everglades are being invaded by invasive species. The most threatening of them are the Pythons. They are thriving and breeding in this ideal habitat. So much that fish & wildlife have almost given up trying to find all of them. This of course, started from pets that either escaped or simply were let loose. Articles HERE and HERE
It does not stop at pythons either...monkeys, tarantulas, monitor lizards and some species of tropical and saltwater fish. They are wreaking havoc on the ecosystem and changing the natural way of the everglades. Is there any way to stop it? I really do not see how. It is like fighting a never ending battle. Another example of how we as humans can fuck everything up.
