Land for Wildlife is embarking on a new round of domestic cat monitoring and awareness in Alice Springs. This project will involve monitoring the movements of domestic cats when they are out and about, by kitting the kitties out with a GPS harness. We will also be trialling the use of small cat-mounted video cameras to see if we can get a visual idea of what the cats are getting up to, as well as scat analysis to see what they are eating.
We have plenty of cat owners in the urban area that are interested but we are lacking volunteers in the rural areas (Ilparpa, White Gums, Ross, Connellan, etc). If you have a domestic cat and are interested in taking part in the upcoming project, we want to hear from you – please get in touch!
