Feral pigs are perceived to cause considerable environmental damage in the rainforests of north-eastern Queensland and are a significant management problem. Because of the pertinence of such a problem to the overall management of the northern rainforests now that the World Heritage Area has been declared, we have compiled and reviewed what is known about the distribution, biology and effects of feral pigs in this region and assess the likely efficacy of control options. We also draw attention to the potential problems of the introduction of exotic diseases into the rainforest pig population.
