Dive In


Ask if man is on the list of non-invasive alien species.

That’s what an outraged cat-lover in Poland said in the midst of a fiery controversy—sparked by the decision of the Polish Academy of Sciences to classify cats as an “invasive alien species.” The decision reflects the fact that cats kill about 140 million birds in Poland each year. No, the academy does not want to get rid of kitties—feral or tame. It is asking people to limit the time their pets spend outdoors during bird breeding season. Attention, conspiracy theorists: the lead biologist is a dog owner.
