The Birdsbesafe® company is pleased to share in the discussion of the new science study, from St. Lawrence University, as reported in the Global Ecology and Conservation Journal, an Elsevier journal available online.Here are the major points, with direct quotes from the journal article.
Using the numbers, above, we at Birdsbesafe company calculate that represents an 87% decrease in birds killed by cats, per year, if cats wear Birdsbesafe® covers in all seasons. Here is the math to use to get to the percentage of birds saved:
1. Calculate the number of birds per year per cat that would be protected, using the above numbers: That's 5.56 minus 0.72 = 4.84 birds protected by device, on average, per year per cat.
2.To turn that into the percentage of birds saved: 4.84 divided by 5.56 = 87% birds protected!
