Sarah Legge, Professor at the Australian National University and a Principal Research Fellow with The University of Queensland. She is a wildlife ecologist with 30 years of research and conservation management experience.

In this webinar, Sarah draws on her 30 plus years of research and conservation management experience to discuss the urgent need for species protection in Australia, focussing on the impact of feral cats.

Sarah discusses why cats have been so harmful to Australian wildlife, as well as the historical and ongoing impact of cats on wildlife, human health, and economics.

Although it is hard to remove cats completely, there is lots of positive work to do in large landscapes, towns, and cities. And Sarah will highlight this to show us how we can protect native species.
