Free roaming cats: a phantom menace?

Mark Farnworth, from the Department of Natural Sciences at Unitec Institute of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand, is curious about cats. Cats as pets and cats as pests. Are cats a threat to biodiversity or are they possible caretakers of biodiversity? This interview was fascinating, and the topic complex, so we are releasing it in two parts. In this – part one – we introduce Mark’s research examining the issues, impact and attitudes toward free roaming (both owned and unowned) cat populations in New Zealand.

  1. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read anything like this before. So good to find somebody with some original ideas on this subject. realy thanks for starting this up. this website is one thing that is wanted on the net, someone with a little originality. useful job for bringing something new to the internet!

  2. Keep these toned prices off your own pledge join sheets.
    Determining how to brand your company and product or
    service is easier than you think if you gain help from your ad reps
    and follow some examples. This keeps the pistons, valves and tappets moving freely preventing them from seizing in the engine
    when left standing for long periods of time.
