Have you seen feral pigs recently?

 
Central Highlands Regional Resources Use Planning Cooperative (CHRRUP) is a regional natural resource management group in Queensland’s Central Highlands. We deliver programs of activities to improve natural resource management practices to improve the sustainability of our region. Feral animals and pest plants are among our region’s biggest threats to production and biodiversity. To find out more about CHRRUP, visit our website http://www.chrrup.org/
 
Feral pigs are a big problem for producers in the Central Highlands, causing damage to crops, fences and native fauna. Information is needed on the worst affected areas to ensure control efforts can be effective.

FeralPigScan is a new resource we can use to document the problem with feral pigs in the Central Highlands. We encourage you to record feral pig activity in FeralPigScan. The more data entered, the more useful it will become for managing feral pigs across our region.
 
 
 

 

Help us identify priority areas for feral pig control

          
FeralPigScan is a free resource for landholders, the community and pest controllers to map sightings of feral pigs, their impacts, and control activities.
 
You can help develop a better picture about the feral pig problem in the Central Highlands by recording feral pig activity in your local area. By mapping pig activity, you can help make more people aware of the problem and identify priority areas for control.
           
Further information please contact CHRRUP on (07) 4982 2996, or E-mail admin@chrrup.org.au

Bring your community together online

 
Create or join an online group to share your observations with other people in your local area (e.g. landholder group). By joining a group, you can (1) keep neighbours informed about wild dog activity, (2) work together with members to target problem areas, and (3) measure control outcomes.

Develop a community mapping resource for your region

Do you need a web and app-based community mapping resource customised for your region, catchment, shire or local government area? Regional sites are now being developed to centralise all wild dog data across regions and generate wild dog activity notifications and reports. Contact Mr Peter West (Invasive Animals CRC) for more details via E-mailferalscan@feralscan.org.au

Are you part of a coordinated wild dog control program?

 
Working with your neighbours is the best way to reduce wild dog damage and maximise the long-term benefits of control. If you need advice on how to establish a wild dog control group, contact your local pest management authorities, or Greg Mifsud at the Invasive Animals CRC (greg.mifsud@invasiveanimals.com)
 

Regional groups connected to WildDogScan

 
Reducing wild dog impacts is best achieved when control is coordinated at local and regional scales. Catchment groups,Local Land Services (LLS) (NSW), and local councils are now connecting to WildDogScan. Use WildDogScan in your local area to keep your regional group(s) informed about current wild dog activity.

CONTROL ADVICE

  • Set up pig traps where there is ripped soil, but well before you intend to use them so pigs get used to them - John
  • Traps can remove a large mob of pigs where-as shooting often only removes a few - Crooksy
  • Email your control tips to feralpigscan@feralscan.org.au and we’ll display them here
