Study evaluating the daytime and nighttime behavioral responses of four mammalian predators to camera traps
New research suggests that camera traps may not be as discrete as previously thought

Feral cats live, hunt and reproduce in the wild. They are the same species as domestic cats but differ in how and where they live. Feral cats have the body shape, acute senses and fine coordination perfectly suited for stalking and capturing prey.
The natural systems of the unique Lake Eyre Basin are under threat. How should we best choose which invasive animals or plants to manage? And how should we change our approach as the climate changes?
Outcomes and recommendations from the 2015 National Feral Cat Workshop released to determine how to effectively protect our native fauna through feral cat management
These proceedings outline high impact research and innovation priorities and national actions for feral cats

Cats are important companion animals in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) with about a quarter of Canberra households owning a cat. All cat owners are required to de-sex and microchip […]
Shooting is one of the main methods currently used for feral cat control however it is labour intensive and not considered an effective broad-scale control method. It may be of […]
Although cage trapping is considered an ineffective tool for large areas, it may be useful in urban/residential areas where domestic cats are present, or where populations have already been reduced […]
Live trapping followed by euthanasia is one of the main methods of feral cat control currently used. In urban/residential areas, cage traps are preferred over leg hold traps as fewer […]

Introduction Terrestrial top-predators are expected to regulate and stabilise food webs through their consumptive and non-consumptive effects on sympatric mesopredators and prey. The lethal control of top-predators has therefore […]
The effects of lethal control of predators, particularly wild dogs (including dingoes) (Canis familiaris) in Australia, is subject to much controversy and recent debate among ecologists. To devise a framework […]
