1500 Feral Cat Baits laid at Charles Darwin Reserve

on 09 Sep 2013 

Is been a bad weekend for all cat supporters!!!

As part of the ongoing study into how to reduce feral cat populations we began the trial of Eradicat baits. This weekend 1500 Eradicat Baits were laid across the Southern Section of  the property. Baits were provided by the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPoW). Monitoring of bait uptake via camera traps, checking bait staions and fauna surveys over the coming months will help identify how effective these initial baits have been. It is our hope we will continue to trial these baits twice a year for the next 3 years.
