Wetland Restoration - Mitigating feral pig disturbance in estuarine wetlands of Kauri Creek
Case study type
The project will provide enhanced protection of a regionally significant saltmarsh/wetland ecosystem of Kauri Creek. The project aims to mitigate the damage caused by feral pigs within the wetland area. Pig damage is most noticeable at the edges of the wetlands and in swamps with extensive trampling and wallowing within the mud flats. The objectives are to reduce feral animal disturbance of soil, ecosystem decline, and sediment transport into the tidal waters.
Objectives will be achieved through the following activities:
