2017-02 Pormpuraaw Aboriginal Shire Council Aerial Cull November 2016

Feral Pigs pose a serious threat to all native fauna and flora, pigs were responsible for 90% predation of the Olive Ridley prior to aerial culling operations by PLASM staff in 2014, aerial feral culling is by far the most effective option for controlling pig populations in the vast coastal marine plains within Pormpuraaw DOGiT.

A two day aerial culling operation with two R22 choppers and licensed and accredited indigenous ranger staff in late November was undertaken and 942 pigs were controlled over 284,000 ha area. These results show the advantage of reduced water availability and concentrate feral pigs at known permanent/semi-permanent water sourcesduring November period. A similar operation in 2015 resulted in 950 pigs being culled.
