National Science Week: Impacts and management of feral cats on the south coast.  

Feral cats can significantly impact native vegetation and species along the south coast and are a primary threat to local wildlife, including chuditch and numbats. 

Efforts to manage the feral cat population include strategic baiting programs, habitat management, and exclusion fencing as part of Western Australia's Western Shield program. These initiatives are vital for reducing predation pressure and supporting the recovery of endangered species in the region.

Parks and Wildlife Services (South Coast Region) Regional Ecologist Sarah Comer will discuss these management efforts and how you can help protect Alblany's unique biodiversity.
