YOUR SAY: Feral cats
GREG Anderson, Commissioner for threatened species said recently that Feral Cats are the number one cause of extinctions in Australia today, with more than 20 small mammals are already extinct, because of feral cats.
The lesser Bilby, the Desert bandicoot, and the Crescent Nailtail Wallaby are already lost to us forever.
But worse another 124 species are under serious threat of extinction.
Cats still hunt and kill them each and every night and this urgently needs to be controlled.
Since the "threatened Species Strategy" was launched by Environment Minister Greg Hunt in June 2015, over $10 million has been invested by the Aust government in projects that are tackling the feral cat problem.
They are seeing some results but a lot more needs to be done, but the government can,t do it alone.
Each and every Aussie needs to do their bit where they can.
Be it with money, or disposing of unwanted cats and kittens responsibly and reporting feral cats in their area.
Farmers and graziers with registered guns can shoot them on their properties, it all helps save our wildlife.
