UGA Kitty Cams 2.0 funded by ASPCA and ABC
If the nonlethal and nontoxic programs and actions outlined and available since 1998 and earlier to address both "owned" and unowned cat issues were systematically pursued by all stakeholders, there would not be the time-wasting controversy currently seen.

What is next for Kitty Cams?or as more accurately stated in Loyd's profile as lecturer for Arizona State University Lake Havasu
We are happy to announce that KittyCams 2.0, the second phase of our project has been approved for funding! We will be following the activities of a managed colony of feral cats on a barrier island off the Georgia coast. We are currently working with National Geographic's CritterCam Program who will produce the second generation of cameras and begin the project in early 2014. The project will be funded by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the American Bird Conservancy. We truly appreciate their efforts!

Cameras in the Wild
Ever wonder what animals are doing when you can't see them? This lecture examines the routines of cats, burrowing owls*, and other wildlife using infrared triggered photography and videography.[* a separate burrowing owl / feral cat issue in California has recently been taken public again by a city council, the media and feral cat advocates: Mountain View Council calls for feral cat taskforce. For one aspect, see the City of Mountain View 2012 Shoreline Burrowing Owl Preservation Plan.]
