An independent scientific field study was conducted at St. Lawrence University, in New York state, using about 50 cats in two periods of fall and spring. The field study compared prey caught by cats, with or without wearing Birdsbesafe collar covers during outdoor roaming.
Our device was called "highly effective" in the research report in the Global Ecology and Conservation Journal. In total, there was a 87% reduction in the number of birds caught when cats wore our products.
The authors wrote: "The conservation implications are clear: if owners of outdoor cats choose to use Birdsbesafe® collar covers, a significant factor in the decline of bird populations would drop precipitously." Read more about the study in our discussion here.
Australian Study: Another science study was led by Murdoch University in Perth, Australia. Their study showed their local birds with good color vision and herpetofauna were significantly protected by our products, with a combined 49% reduction.
