Land for Wildlife was conducting trials this month with the GPS-trackers and video surveillance camera as part of the Domestic Cat Monitoring and Awareness in Alice Springs project. The first cat to trial the camera was TeeGee, an adventurous tabby moggy that was adopted by his owners’ pet duck (Scarfy and Friend), and has since become a part of the family. You can see TeeGee’s adventures on our YouTube channel (see below).
Land for Wildlife is still looking for volunteer cat owners for the Domestic Cat Monitoring and Awareness program in Alice Springs. We will be looking at running another round of monitoring in February so please let us know if you are interested in taking part in the program to see where cats wander and what they see.
This project is supported by Territory Natural Resource Management, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
