Pressures on the Rainforest – Feral Pigs

After extensive trials, the Wet Tropics Management Authority and other government agencies support pig trapping as the best available practice to control these pests. The Authority works with community groups and landholders to promote effective trapping programs. In the longer term researchers are focusing on reducing the pigs’ birth rate through biological controls such as immunocontraception or lactation inhibition.
