MANAGEMENT PREFERENCES

I conducted an online survey regarding stakeholder preferences for cat management, surveying people who identified as either feral cat advocates or wild bird advocates. While there have been other surveys on this topic, usually locally-focused, there was a need for a national study of how both key stakeholder groups rate all cat management options (from sterilization and deterrents to lethal methods), including some of the exciting new non-lethal population control methods that are being developed for use in cats.

A manuscript on this study has been submitted to an academic journal.

I presented a poster on this study at the HSUS Animal Care Expo and the International Urban Wildlife Conference.
