1:15 PM The Meander Valley Feral Cat Trapping Program Update (funded by the Australian Government’s Threatened Species Unit)
This catchment wide program has been using a number of techniques to trap feral cats in Meander Valley. Project coordinator Kevin Knowles will provide insights into methods being used to trap feral cats and reduce impacts on stock and wildlife.
Our past Member Outreach BBQs have had a great turnout, so this one is sure to be popular too.
