    Management Notes for this Location:
    There is an ongoing capture-neuter-release of Felis catus program in many areas, though the ecological effects of this are unrecorded and questionable (De Silva, 2003 in Varnham, 2006;102). Legislation is planned to licence cat ownership (De Silva, 2003 in Varnham, 2006).
    Location Notes:
    Reduction in native biodiversity: Cats, Felis catus prey on bird life (De Silva, 2003 in Varnham, 2006), they are known to kill native tropicbirds (Dobson, 2002 in Varnham, 2006).
