Your feral cat culling efforts are important to help save our native animals. We are Part of the Solution.TOMORROW IS THE FINAL DAY OF THE RMIT FERAL CAT SURVEY!

This photo is a stark reminder of the impact of feral cats. Despite being Australia's heaviest venomous snake, the mulga snake came off second best in its battle with a feral cat on an outback Australian Wildlife Conservancy property, near Cunnamulla in Western Queensland.

If you haven't already, I encourage you to complete the RMIT Feral Cat Survey and have your say.

It only takes five minutes, but it will provide critical information.

Whether you are a conservation professional, farmer, Indigenous ranger or member of the community, please click on the link below and help us get a national picture of action in the fight against #extinction.

Here are links to the survey -
