RSPCA Animal Welfare Seminar 2021
FELINE FUTURES: Exploring Humane Domestic Cat Management in Australia
Thursday 18 and Friday 19 February 2021
The 2021 Animal Welfare Seminar was “FELINE FUTURES: Exploring Humane Domestic Cat Management in Australia” held on Thursday 18 and Friday 19 February 2021 (Two half days - afternoons only). Given the exceptional circumstances of 2020 and the continued uncertainty into 2021, the decision was made to hold the seminar online.
We explored the future of humane domestic cat management in Australia.
Widespread humane and effective management of owned, unowned and semi-owned cats remains elusive, despite significant effort and investment of resources by some stakeholders to address the issue.
Are stricter laws the best solution or can we do more collectively through better communication and collaboration?
RSPCA’s Animal Welfare Seminar 2021 brought together diverse stakeholders from government, industry, animal welfare, academia and the wider community to share knowledge and experiences to identify key challenges and opportunities to achieve more humane management of domestic cats.
Including all presentation videos.
