Land for Wildlife are pleased to announce that we have been successful in securing funding from Territory Natural Resource Management to support the Domestic Cat Monitoring and Awareness program in Alice Springs for another year. The grant from TNRM is supported with funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program. The funded program involves using GPS-equipped harnesses to track the movements of domestic cats in urban and rural Alice Springs. This next round also involves trialling some video cameras on their chest to see if we can see what they get up to when they’re out and about. Part three of the program will involve analysing faecal samples for diet when they return.
We will be seeking interested domestic cat owners to be a part of the monitoring program. If you are interested in being a part of the Domestic Cat Monitoring and Awareness program, please contact the LfW coordinator, Caragh, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
