What FeralCatScan provides

Feral cats prey on Australia's unique native wildlife, and they are also known to spread diseases that affect humans and livestock. Australia has lost 28 mammals already to feral cats and another 120 native animals are at direct risk from this invasive species. FeralCatScan is a community resource for anyone to use to record sightings or evidence of feral cats in their local area.

FeralCatScan is a free resource for concerned citizens, landholders, community groups, pest control professionals, and biosecurity organisations. It can be used to help map were you see feral cats, record the damage or impacts they cause (such as predation of native species), and document where control has been undertaken.

FeralCatScan is easy to use for monitoring feral cats in your local area.

You can record feral cat sighting (or evidence), impacts (such as predation of native wildlife), and control activities (such a trapping). 

Document the feral cat problem.

By using FeralCatScan, you can help land managers to identify the scale of a problem with feral cats, and identify effective solutions for humane, justified and appropriate management to prevent feral cat impacts.

Seek assistance.

This resource may be used to help you access support and resources, or may help local authorities to undertake the control on your behalf. 


Work together with your neighbours.

People often say that they get the best results when managing feral cats when they are working with their neighbours. FeralCatScan can be used to develop a map of feral cat sightings and activity, to decide when and where to undertake control with your neighbours.

Alert your neighbours, community and local biosecurity group.

If you record feral cat information into FeralCatScan, this can be used (if you choose to do so) to automatically alert your local community, neighbours, or biosecurity group about feral cat activity at your location.

This resource is specifically for feral cats - Please do not record the presence of domestic cats or stray cats in your local area. Contact your local government authorities regarding domestic or stray cat issues.
