Keeping Our Wildlife Safe

Keeping Cats Safe at Home

26 Jul 2022

Sydney Olympic Park is excited to collaborate with the RSPCA NSW on a ground breaking project – Keeping Cats Safe at Home.

Impact of cats on wildlife

The $2.5 million NSW Environmental Trust-funded grant project aims to reduce the negative impacts that cats have on wildlife, and to encourage cat owners to keep their cats safely contained at home so they can live longer, happier and healthier lives.

This initiative is incredibly important to Sydney Olympic Park, as the Park is home to over 250 animal species that may be impacted by cats, including many rare and threatened wildlife such as the endangered Green and Golden Bell Frog. 

Responsible cat ownership

Did you know:

  • A cat kept safe at home will live on average 10 years longer than a cat who is allowed to roam.
  • Less than 1 in 10 cats who go missing in NSW are reunited with their family?
  • 2 in 3 cat owners have lost a cat to a roaming-related accident
  • 1 in 3 cat owners have lost a cat to a car accident

RSPCA NSW are sharing insights and advice on cat safety and enrichment to extend and enhance the lives of cats across NSW. Visit Keeping Cats Safe at Home for more information.
