OINK OINK & THE WILD FERAL PIGS OF AUSTRALIA

WILD FERAL PIG RESEARCH IN QUENSLAND AUSTRALIA

Biosecurity scientists have been researching to find out just how much damage feral pigs cause to Queensland’s unique tropical freshwater ecosystems. The bad news is that feral pigs are damaging the plants, invertebrates and fish in freshwater lakes which has impacts on the fragile and unique ecosystems. The good news is now that there is a better understanding about these impacts, more can be done to protect these ecosystems for the future.
