Hi all,
This came to me via the Australian Mammal Society.

It will be of interest to all on B-A, with the Fed govt calling for comment on 
their latest draft. 

This is a chance for all those uninformed people on B-A, who "govt bashed" for 
not doing anything about cats, to become informed and even have their say about 
the latest draft plans. In other words, put their pen where their mouth is....

Cat TAP – Open for comment

Predation by feral cats is listed as a key threatening process in the EPBC Act. 
The Cat Threat Abatement Plan (TAP) aims to provide a national framework to 
guide and coordinate Australia's response to the impacts of feral cats on 

The first feral cat threat abatement plan was prepared in 1999, updated in 2008 
and now undergoing in its five yearly review.  

The Minister for the Environment has released the draft varied ‘Threat 
abatement plan for predation by feral cats ’ for public comment. Comments are 
invited until 8 July 2015.

Please see the Department of Environment's website for more information.

Sorry the link doesn't come through from my phone...

Yours in all things "green"

Hi Tania, 
There's none on Magnetic Is. 
As for Charters Towers, I've never seen them there and I go through there 
regularly, but I guess it depends on where: "Charters Towers" sometimes means 
more than just the town itself. Do you have any more specific info on the CT
