Citizen Science: Effects of cat and dog ownership on wildlife (2014)$2,775
The project will engage Hobart urban residents in assisting in the conservation, protection and enhancement of their bushland areas by increasing the awareness and understanding of the effects of cats and dogs on backyard wildlife. It will use a series of public education events and local media advertisements to encourage residents to participate in an online survey.
