There are no foxes in the Artesian Range. The population of feral cats is unknown. However, our preliminary research, including camera trap surveys, suggests that the density of feral cats in the Artesian Range is lower than in the central Kimberley.
Across Australia, feral cats are killing at tens of millions of native animals every night. At this point in time, there is no effective mechanism for eradicating cats at a landscape level. However, at the Artesian Range and our other properties in the Kimberley, AWC is leading the way in developing a strategy for limiting their impact:
AWC has deployed multiple camera trap arrays (1,737 camera trap-nights in 2013) to assess the density of feral cats in the Artesian Range
