canberra - An Australian nature reserve has built the longest anti-cat fence in the world to protect endangered species. The electric fence is 44 kilometers long and must ensure that foxes, wild cats and rabbits are kept out of the reserve. According to the BBC, the project ensures that populations of some animal species will double.
'There are some fifty to sixty cats in this area alone, and they eat more than 70,000 animals a year,' said the head of the AWC animal welfare organization. Park rangers want to wipe out all predators this year, making Newhaven Wildlife Sanctuary the largest cat-free area in Australia. In 2019, a number of endangered species will be reintroduced.
The project is part of a larger project to reintroduce indigenous species. The fence is one of the most important animal protection projects in Australian history.
