Caring for Country: Managing cats

Tue, 09 Nov 2021

This animation was co-developed by Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities and the Threatened Species Recovery Hub. It is narrated by Jimmy Edgar (winner of the 2013 NAIDOC Caring for Country award), from Yawuru and Karrijarri country. The aim of the animation is to highlight that while cats are important companion animals, their population must be managed, toreduce the risks of cats transmitting pathogens to native wildlife, people and livestock, and reduce impacts to wildlife. We hope that it is useful for sharing knowledge on cats and their impacts, especially in remote communities.
