Peter P. Marra - Cat Wars: The Devastating Consequences of a Cuddly Killer

Upcoming Event
Sunday, November 6, 2016 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Bird populations and avian diversity are in decline around the world, prey to shrinking habitat, climate change, and free-ranging cats. In their startling look at the enormous toll cats take on birds—killing billions of them annually—Marra, coeditor of Birds of Two Worlds, and director of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, and Santella, a widely published journalist and author of the Fifty Places travel and outdoor series, draw attention to an often overlooked crisis that calls for immediate action, both to preserve bird populations and to prevent the passage of feline-borne diseases such as rabies and parasitic Toxoplasma from passing to humans.
