Woylie at Karakamia behind feral fence

Impact of feral cats on threatened species was major conference theme. What is cat’s role in the decline of the Woylie, which is now back on critically endangered lists? Is the rise of cats an example of meso-predator release following too successful fox  (and dingo) control?

Other discussions were management of the insurance populations of Tasmanian devil’s both on mainland Australia in zoos and Tasmanian islands.
