over three years building the world’s

largest island safe haven• Remove 1000 feral cats from Kangaroo Island.
• Eradicate feral cats from 39,000 hectares by

building an exclusion barrier.

• Recover seven threatened species.

• Develop community, research and
industry partnerships.

Your contribution will boost the eradication of feral cats from
Australia’s third largest island, Kangaroo Island.

description
Your funding will implement a feral cat eradication program on Australia’s third largest island
and improve the populations of seven threatened mammals and birds. Removing the major
threat of feral cats will also benefit 50 other native species found across the 440,000 ha of
Kangaroo Island.

This project will involve the construction of a feral cat exclusion barrier to establish a
39,000 hectares feral cat free zone on Dudley Peninsula. Outcomes will be supported by
stringent domestic cat legislation and a campaign to promote responsible pet ownership.
