The first community update for NRM South’s ‘Priority actions for eastern quolls on north Bruny Island’ is now up online. Over the next two years, we’ll be releasing these updates quarterly to keep the community informed about the most recent developments of our work to manage domestic, stray and feral cats on Bruny Island.
The first report is a wrap up of the first year of activities, which have largely been focused on getting the groundwork in place to get project actions underway. Some key highlights from the 2020-21 financial year include the removal of 23 feral and 17 stray cats from the project area, monitoring and control trials now underway and the significant progress made on the community engagement aspect of the project.
If you’re a permanent or part-time resident of the island – or even just an interested visitor – you can download a copy of the report at the link below. Keep an eye on our website for future reports, which will all be stored on the project page (https://nrmsouth.org.au/eastern-quoll-bruny-island/).
