Feral cat and fox control at Kalamurina
Feral cats and foxes occur at high densities across central Australia. They are a primary cause of the disappearance of many small-medium sized mammals.
AWC field staff shoot foxes and cats, to the extent practicable.
In 2014, 12 feral cats and 12 foxes were shot.
Importantly, AWC is undertaking detailed research across our network of sanctuaries (for example, our work at Mornington) to develop more effective, landscape-scale control of feral cats.
