Pet Sterilisation Programme | November 6th, 2008

The local Inter-institutional Committee for the Management of Introduced Species (CIMEI) together with Animal Balance, an NGO from the USA, have initiated a pet sterilisation campaign on San Cristobal. Over a 5-day period, 117 dogs and cats were sterilised. This is part of an ongoing campaign to reduce the number of unwanted pets which almost inevitably end up becoming feral and causing havoc with the native species.
