Project: 1.1

Impacts and management options for introduced predators

Project Leaders: Sarah Legge, John Woinarski

Feral cats and foxes, as well as changed fire regimes and introduced herbivores, have caused many species extinctions and remain a serious threat to Australia’s vertebrate species, especially its mammals.

This research aims to find the best management actions to reduce the impacts of feral predators, and help restore native animal populations including threatened species.

Work will take place at a range of sites across Australia and include case studies of threatened species population recovery.
