What FeralCatScan provides

Feral cats prey on Australia's unique native wildlife (including many threatened species) and are associated with the spread of diseases that affect humans and livestock. FeralCatScan is a free resource for landholders, community groups, pest control professionals, and biosecurity organisations.

It can be used to help map were you see feral cats, record impacts (such as predation of native species) or other problems they cause, and document where control has been undertaken. Information you upload can help with humane, justified and effective management of feral cat populations.
