Summary

Project works align to the implemented based on the findings of 'Feral Pig Control on the Stanage Peninsula' report.

This will involve communicating with Stanage Peninsula landholders to determine density of feral pigs present in the project area. Based on higher levels being present, FBA will coordinate with landholders to engage the services of an experienced helicopter pilot and helishooter to cull feral pigs across 34,800 ha of the Broadsound Wetlands, which is listed under the Directory of Important Wetlands, Australia.

Benefits

This project will:
  • reduce pressure on sensitive wetland ecosystem
  • reduce soil transport from wetland to reef
  • reduce nutrient transport from wetland to reef.
