The Wild Deserts project has established a 100 km2 ‘wild-training zone’ in which feral cat densities need to be tightly controlled. To do this we need to understand the density at which control measures need to be implemented across the area. This project will fit GPS collars to feral cats and examine how often each cat would interact with a grid of control measures (cameras, Felixer grooming traps, cage traps) and potential enhancements (lures, barrier fences, clearings) across the area to determine optimum placement of control methods.
