Management Notes for this Location:
Cats were eradicated from Long Cay in July 1999 to prepare the island for reintroduction of iguanas. 1080 was the poison used, placed in bait stations across the island. It was thought that there were less than ten cats on the cay, and the single poisoning operation appeared to achieve eradication. In January 2000, a single cat was deliberately released on Long Cay from one of the larger islands. This cat was promptly removed by trapping. Iguanas have since been successfully introduced. The community of the South Caicos needs to be involved in order to maintain the cat-free status of Long Cay.
