Participatory Science Platform
A Curious Minds project where schools and community participants will question how domestic cats are interacting with sensitive natural areas and investigate ways of altering cat behaviour to allow positive outcomes for pet cat welfare and endangered species conservation.
This project will build on the learnings from PSP "Taranaki Furbabies". Welbourn School will focus on the Key Native Ecosystems of the Te Henui. The community participants are resident at several other sites; on the border area of the Egmont National Park and several coastal areas which are breeding grounds for shore birds. The schools near the sensitive areas will be provided with contact visits to communicate the project aims, brainstorming sessions, and conveying results.
