A number of introduced animals, including rabbits, foxes, feral goats and feral pigs, have established large and widespread populations in Australia. The extent of their populations means that their eradication from the entire mainland is not feasible. Therefore, apart from exclusion or localised eradication campaigns, we need to accept the continued presence of pest animals and determine how best to manage this presence to reduce agricultural and environmental impacts.
