Diggings by Feral Pigs Within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area of North Queensland

The association of ground-digging activity of feral pigs with a range of environmental variables was examined in the wet tropics World Heritage Area of north Queensland. Approximately 4% of the surveyed ground was disturbed by digging activity of feral pigs. Significant differences in diggings were detected between highland and lowland areas and between habitat types. Diggings were more prevalent in lowland areas and coastal swamp habitats. Diggings were positively associated with roads, tracks and moist drainage lines.
