About the Document
This threat abatement plan establishes a national framework to guide and coordinate Australia’s response to the impact of feral pigs on biodiversity. It identifies the research, management and other actions needed to ensure the long term maintenance of native species and ecological communities affected by predation, habitat degradation, competition and disease transmission by feral pigs. It replaces the threat abatement plan for feral pigs published in 2005.
This plan should be read in conjunction with the publication Background document for the threat abatement plan for predation, habitat degradation, competition and disease transmission by feral pigs). The background document provides information on feral pig characteristics, biology and distribution; impacts on environmental, economic, social and cultural values; and current management practices and measures.
