Appreciated the generalized approach to monitoring free-ranging populations of any species. Good example to help understand the principles.
Dr Mary Rupley (18 Jun 2018)
I work in TNR and I doubt very much that walking around even early in the morning will give you much actual idea of the number of cats. i go to areas that we know contain numbers of cats and you rarely see any of them.

Description

This document is a practical guide for “counting cats,” focusing on determining actual or estimated baseline numbers of free roaming cats in an area targeted for management, and monitoring the changes in population over time to see if goals of TNR or other programs are being met. Authors Dr. John Boone, a biologist, and the ASPCA’s Dr. Margaret Slater, make the case that good data are critical to developing and implementing the most successful cat population management program possible, and provide tangible examples of how to gather good data.

Objectives

This “how-to” guide covers:
- Goals of population monitoring
- The reasons for monitoring populations
- Principles of monitoring program design
- Examples of designing and implementing an outdoor cat monitoring program
