Systematic review: Cat predation

Stray and companion (pet) cats are common in New Zealand and present a substantial threat to both native and non-native wildlife, especially in areas close to stands of mature trees or native bush.  To support a policy update, a literature review was commissioned by NZVA looking at the impact of stray, feral and companion cats on New Zealand's wildlife and local communities. 

Petra Muellner co-authored the review and assisted the NZVA in the development of their policy update.
