Subject: [CPEO-MEF] NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT: Feral cats removal from San Nicolas Island (CA) deemed complete
Cats nabbed on island looking for local homes

An unusual effort to restore sea bird populations on a Navy-owned island is complete after about five dozen feral cats were taken to Ramona to live out their days in an animal sanctuary.


The last feral cat on San Nicolas Island was removed in 2010 and the project was deemed done this month after two years of monitoring with remote cameras did not turn up any more cats, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and partners. Cats had been left on the island in decades past by service members and their numbers grew over time until they presented a threat to ground-nesting birds, the federally threatened night island lizard and other creatures.
