Cats are the #1 wandering predator in Auckland

Gareth MorganEnvironment

Over the weekend the Nation and TV3 News covered the results of our cat camera study which tracked wandering cats in Auckland. The study found similar results to Wellington; that each property has an average of at least 2 cat visits per day, amounting to 300 million per year. The results are summarised in the infographic below.
The tide appears to be turning in favour of microchipping cats so that they can be managed in sensitive wildlife areas, with a poll on our site and from The Nation on Twitter showing overwhelming support. Any Aucklanders that want to see cats microchipped and managed in sensitive wildlife areas should make a submission to the Council. We’ve made this easy for you to submit online with the form below the infographic.
