Feral ANIMALS

Feral pigs, feral cats and foxes are high priority pests because of the damage they cause to agricultural production and the environment. Feral pigs in particular are consistently identified by local governments in our region as a high priority due to their environmental and production impacts. 

QMDC has been working across the Queensland Murray-Darling Basin since 2004 to better coordinate feral animal control methods and efforts.  We involve numerous stakeholders from landholders through to government to carry out vital research into production and biodiversity impacts while investigating the benefits of coordinated control.

Partners include: 

  • Robert Wicks Pest Animal Research Centre (Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries) 
  • Biosecurity Queensland
  • Australian Government's National Landcare Programme and the Queensland Government Natural Resource Management Program
  •  Invasive Animals CRC
  • University of New England (Armidale, NSW)
  • Penn State (USA)

QMDC technical staff can provide landholders with advice on effective control methods based on the latest scientific resarch. Call our office on 07 4637 6200 or email: info@qmdc.org.au
