Feral pigs in the Obi Valley

Pigs were brought to Australia by the First Fleet in 1788. Today, it is estimated that Australia now has up to 24 million feral pigs. They are among Queensland’s most widespread and damaging pest animals. Feral pigs spread weeds, degrade soil and water, prey on native species, damage crops and livestock, and carry diseases.

Red Foxes in the Obi Valley

Foxes (introduced in the 1830’s) have a major impact on the Australian fauna, predating on ground nesting birds, mammals and reptiles. Foxes compete with Australian native animals for food and habitat and can act as a reservoir of disease for wildlife and domestic animals. They also prey on John Cutmores  chickens.
