  • Canberra Environment Centre Cnr Lennox Crossing and Lawson Crescent Acton (map)

Keeping your cat indoors, or in an outdoor enclosure is better for local wildlife, and experts say that it’s better for your cat as well. Learn about the things you can do to give your furry friend the best quality of life while being snug and safe indoors. Get up-to-date information about the proposed expansion to the cat containment laws and hear about the impact of roaming cats on Canberra’s environment.
