In the debate will participate the General Coordinator of Ecology, Agriculture and Animal Welfare of the City Council of Palma, Josep Maria Rigo Serra; the veterinarian Antoni Marí, of the Col·legi de Veterinaris de les Illes Balears (COVIB) and Maite Trobat, catcher of felines of Puig de Sant Pere, moderated by the vice president of Baldea (Balearic Platform for the Defense of Animals) and President of Amics dels Animals de Esporles, Olga Coego. Together they will analyze the situation of the cat colonies in Palma and, by extension, on the island, and what the control and care programs are for them.
