Feral pigs are a relatively new problem facing farmers and landholders in the southwest of Western Australia and unfortunately, they appear to be expanding their range at a great speed with their high rate of reproduction and the southwest providing an ideal habitat for them to flourish.

Lower Blackwood Vertebrate Pest Management Group is working with landholders to control the increase in feral pigs and reduce their impact on our unique environment and agricultural industry through:

  • Engagement of field officers working across the region to trap & shoot pigs

  • Monitoring & mapping of pig populations

Pig Sighting Register

We are currently focusing on the Augusta Margaret River Shire and we are asking landholders to notify us of any sightings.

Don’t Hesitate!
