National Feral Cat Management Survey
Jul 20, 2016
As part of the Threatened Species Strategy, RMIT University in partnership with the Australian Government is conducting a National Feral Cat Management Survey with funding from the National Landcare Programme. Along with other data, the results of the survey will be used to report progress against the Australian Government Threatened Species Strategy Year 1 target: 150 000 feral cats culled at the national level.
The survey is being circulated through state based farmers federations, the Sporting Shooters Association, conservation groups, councils, NRM organisations and other networks where feral cat control may be undertaken. The purpose of the survey is to support quantitative understanding of the national feral cat management effort and better understand people’s motivations for, and understanding of, feral cat management. It will provide insight into feral cat control not typically included in existing databases. The survey should only take five minutes to complete and will be open until 7 August 2016. Please circulate through networks in an effort to maximise the response rate and confidence in the final data.
