How to participate

For cat owners in South Australia: we have finished collecting data and tracking cats in South Australia. However, we are starting to analyse the data collected and are hoping to take this project national during 2016-2017 if we can gain all the necessary funding and approvals, including tracking more cats in SA.

Resources for teachers

We have created extensive resources for teachers to use in the classroom. The resources provide cross-curriculum links to learning areas including science, mathematics, geography, history and the arts. We have suggested a learning framework and provide links to resources for Reception to Year 9 school students, which can easily be adapted for all age groups. Click here to access the teacher resources.

About the project

We are collaborating with researchers from Your Wildlife in the USA to bring Cat Tracker to South Australia. Click here to see the cat tracks recorded in the USA (click on a picture of a cat to see where that cat travelled). You can see the cat tracks from South Australia, too (click here).


We have developed four fact-sheets as part of the educational resources for this project. They include information about the taxonomy of cats, cat biology, the history of cats, and the differences between owned, semi-owned and un-owned cats. Click here to view the fact-sheets.
