Recent research on the impact of outdoor cats on native wildlife species has been revealing and Nature PEI was pleased to share this research with the public in October 2019 when Dr. Dave McRuer, a wildlife health specialist employed by Parks Canada and based at the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) in Charlottetown, PEI, was our guest speaker.
With both media and public interest in this topic remaining high we have decided to make available the slides from the presentation through our website.
Here is the presentation in .pdf format.
