The National Feral Pig Action Plan
Draft National Feral Pig Action Plan
On 15 January 2021, the first draft of the National Feral Pig Action Plan, with an additional concise summary, was submitted to the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment. Both documents can be downloaded by clicking on each image, or using the download button, below.
The National Feral Pig Action Plan is the first national strategy that has been developed to address reducing the impacts caused by feral pigs to Australia’s environmental, agricultural, cultural and social assets through sustained, coordinated and collaborative actions by land managers.
This Plan is the culmination of extensive consultations with the NFPAP’s Steering Group and our stakeholders, including the federal, state and territory, and local governments, multiple agricultural industries, natural resource management, environment and conservation groups, indigenous organisations and land managers around Australia.
We invited stakeholders to provide feedback on both the draft Plan and its concise summary from 29th January to 26th February 2021. The NFPAP was submitted to DAWE in late April 2021 and has now been provided to the Environment and Invasives Committee to obtain its recommendation that it be endorsed by the National Biosecurity Committee.
