Batchelor Institute Trapping Workshop

— by Caragh

Land for Wildlife assisted the Batchelor Institute last week with a feral cat (Felis catus) trapping workshop, including the use of “pongo” and baits as lures, cat trap use, camera trapping and ethical considerations. The group were successful in catching one cat in their two evenings of trapping effort and managed to capture a couple of inquisitive crows on the camera traps. Good work crew!
