This project aimed to understand how feral predator control programs can be affected by additional food sources from introduced prey species. These includes populations of European rabbits, and anthropogenic food provided in dumps and towns. We looked at how rabbit control might affect cat survival and population dynamics, how conservation reserves might attract feral cats (Felis catus), and how supplementary food sources at townships might support feral cat populations during drought.
