NCC: Feral Pig Management

Implement coordinated, strategic feral pig control programs, that are informed by local knowledge.

Why it is important?

Feral pigs cause enormous damage to agricultural industries and natural systems in the Northern Cassowary Coast. It is vital their numbers are managed to reduce their impacts, however local knowledge is needed to ensure the best outcomes. In our environment, we need better understanding of the use of pig traps so they don’t impact on non-target species, such as cassowaries.
