Feral cat distribution, abundance, management and impacts on threatened species: collation and analysis of data
This project will improve our understanding of feral cat impacts and how to mitigate those impacts. It will collate and analyse large and diverse sets of data to estimate cat distribution and abundance, and measure predation rates by cats on birds, reptiles and mammals, and to identify the ecological traits that make some species more susceptible to cat predation than others.
Translocation, reintroduction and conservation fencing for threatened fauna
This project will research the most feasible and cost-effective translocation strategies to boost the size and long-term viability of wild populations. This will include improved planning for, and implementation of, translocations of mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs.
