The battle our native wildlife face with our cats
It’s staggering but cats kill 1.7 billion native animals each year, in fact cats have played a major role in most of the 34 mammal extinctions in Australia.
A national inquiry has called the impact of cats on wildlife an issue of national significance.
The final report was released last week and calls for more action on both feral and pet cats including heightened policies and greater management and response.
