Feral Cat Management Survey
01 August 2016
Central Tablelands Local Land Services is inviting land managers from across the region to participate in a national feral cat management survey.
The national survey which is being conducted by the RMIT University in Melbourne aims to determine the extent to which feral cat control is occurring across Australia, and to estimate the number of feral cats that are being removed from the environment each year.
The project also aims to understand how efforts to control feral cats are changing over time.
Peter Evans, Senior Land Services Officer with Central Tablelands Local Land Services said, “Feral cats have a significant impact on native biodiversity across our region. It is extremely important that we capture as much information and knowledge regarding the control methods of feral cats and their numbers within Australia.”
The survey can be undertaken online and is completely anonymous. It is made up of a number of short questions about feral cats and what, if any, measures you take to manage feral cats. The survey should only take about five minutes to complete.
We expect the results of the survey to be available in late 2016.
For more information regarding the survey, please contact Richard Faulkner from RMIT University on (03) 9925 9095.
