The National Gallery of Art has one of the largest art collections in America. But how diverse are the artists?
How many feral cats live in D.C.? That’s the $1.5 million question cat lovers and haters want to know.
For years, cat lovers have wanted to assist outdoor cats in their preferred habitat. At the same time, bird lovers have highlighted the danger feral cats pose to local bird populations. Now, both teams are joining forces to perform a “cat census” of sorts.
Over the next three years, scientists will gather data on outdoor cats. The hope is that a better understanding of this population will better inform the debate between “Team Cat” and “Team Bird.” Kojo discusses the project with WAMU’s Jacob Fenston and a Washingtonian working on the count.
