FERAL HOUSE CAT - INVASIVE
Bimini unfortunately has an overpopulation of feral house cats, which are opportunistic predators and feed on many birds, lizards, and snakes. According to the American Bird Conservancy, feral cats are responsible for killing 1.4.-3.7 BILLION birds each year! Feral cats have likely contributed to the extinctions of 14% of bird, mammal and reptile extinctions on Bahamian islands.
The in an effort to reduce the number of feral cats on Bimini, the Shark Lab has been hosting spay and neuter vet clinics for decades.
