Summary

There is impairment of wetland ecosystems by feral pigs (Sus scrofa) along the Discovery Coast. To ensure areas of high biodiversity value are maintained or improved, feral pig management strategies will be developed and implemented on 300 ha property at Lowmead by Bush to Bay Weed Control. Bush to Bay Weed Control will carry out a baseline weed distribution survey of riparian area at Bundaberg Sugar property on the Kolan River, and pig control/trapping will occur for 20 days, including 10 days of training workshops with Land and Sea Rangers Gidarjil Rangers.

Benefits

Reducing identified threats to biodiversity and enhancing environmental condition would assist maintaining and re-establishing ecosystem functions at project sites.
