Feral pigs currently cause significant economic, environmental and social issues within the Mackay Region. Within 2002 the Cane productivity loss due to feral pigs in the Mackay District was 16,648 tonnes, 633Ha. In addition to this economic loss, environmental and social damage due to feral pigs is occurring within the Mackay region.
This project aims to actively involve all relevant sectors of the community including; Landholders, Natural Parks and Wildlife Service, Mackay Area Productivity Service (MAPS), City/Shire Councils and the Department of Natural Resources Mines and Energy in strategic feral pig trapping programs.
