2020-03-10 19:00:00 2020-03-10 20:30:00 America/Vancouver Role of the Public in Cats and Wildlife Welfare Speaker: Anna Skurikhina: After habitat loss, roaming cats are the #1 human-caused source of bird mortality. It is estimated that cats kill between 100 and 350 million birds annually in Canada alone. To address this issue, Anna will talk about free-roaming cats in the province, the benefits of keeping cats indoors, or supervised outdoors, and ways to reduce cat predation of wildlife (birds in particular). Anna is an outreach coordinator for the Stewardship Centre for BC, promoting education about Cats and Birds issues in the Okanagan while introducing solutions to this problem. Previously, she has been involved in several wildlife conservation projects, including work with amphibians and reptiles at Osoyoos and in the White Lake basin, in a marine ecology study on Vancouver Island, bird banding at the Vaseux Lake Bird Observatory, and wildlife research at Thompson Rivers University.
