Comox Valley Cats & Birds

Comox Valley Cats & Birds

In this edition of the Community Producers, host Judi Murakami talks to local advocates for cats and birds. D.G. Blair, Executive Director of the Stewardship Centre, and Louise Pedersen, Executive Director of Nature Kids BC suggest what we can do to minimize interactions between cats and wildlife for the benefit of both.

Suggestions include keeping cats from roaming at large by training them to walk on a leash or building them a catio.

There is also a discussion about why this is particularly important in BC, which is home to an enormous diversity of bird species, important wildlife management areas and several migratory flyways.

The video (below) was produced for Shaw Channel 4 in Comox Valley, BC.
