In Montpellier France last week, Dr. Susan Willson of St. Lawrence University presented information about her study of Birdsbesafe® cat collar covers during the International Conservation Biology Congress. Her poster session was entitled, "Birds be safe: Can a novel cat collar reduce avian mortality by domestic cats (Felis catus)?" This study was previously published as a journal article in Global Ecology and Conservation Journal.
The international congress "addresses conservation challenges" from around the globe, while also reporting on new research in conservation. Dr. Willson's presentation will of course help Birdsbesafe products become better known, globally, and we are very excited. In her research paper, she wrote: "...the conservation implications are clear: if owners of outdoor cats choose to use the Birdsbesafe® CCs [collar covers], a significant factor in the decline of songbird populations would drop precipitously."

Results of a scientific field study, led by Univ. of Exeter's Dr. Robbie MacDonald, were published in the journal Current Biology this week."Fitting Birdsbesafe collar covers reduced the numbers of birds captured and brought home by 42% but had no discernible effect on mammals."
And, the research paper characterized it: "Birdsbesafe is a colorful collar cover that works as a visual warning, increasing the visibility of cats to potential prey animals with color vision. It exhibited pronounced effectiveness in reducing killing of birds, and more generally, prey with good color vision, including herpetofauna."

We really enjoy hearing from you about your successes with Birdsbesafe® collar covers on your cats protecting birds in your yards. Here's just a sampling of some recent emails that we have received! We appreciate every one of them.
Thanks for caring about cats and birds.
"We love your product, it’s amazingly effective…not a single caught bird since we’ve started using the collar covers. Wish all cat owners who let their cats outside knew about these."
