Cat Tracking Researchers Needed


cattrackerCat Tracker – Find out the secret life of your feline friend. Investigate where and how far your outdoor cat roams by tracking them with GPS technology. Does your cat stay in the backyard or does it wander into your neighborhood? We will be comparing your cat’s range data with those from coyote-free Long Island to see if they roam differently when a top predator nearby. We have harnesses and GPS units available for loan at no charge. Please contact Tim Walsh, Citizen Science Coordinator by email twalsh@brucemuseum.org or phone (203) 413-6767.
