Abstract

A plan to clear a remote Australian island of
feral cats to save the millions of rare seabirds
on which they were preying has created an
alarming ecological domino effect.
The resulting degradation of Macquarie Island,
half way between Tasmania and Antarctica,
has been branded an international
embarrassment by scientists.
