There are an estimated 24 million #FeralPigs in Australia, and despite best efforts, their populations continue to increase & leave #wetland destruction in their wake. This video discusses specific wetland impacts and how on-ground efforts from organisations like Kalan Enterprises are addressing the problem.

Queensland Environment had identified pig damage as a major wetland issue, but until this NESP Northern Hub project, impacts of pig damage on specific wetland types had not been quantified. To better understand pig preferences for different wetland types, this project also contributed to a wetland typology to distinguish one wetland type from another.

This project then quantified the impact of feral species on wetland condition, the effectiveness of control measures on mitigating the threats to aquatic systems, and the subsequent impact on cultural wetland values.
