Feral animals can damage our landscapes, spread disease and weeds and threaten our native animals and cultural resources. Djunbunji Land and Sea Rangers actively manage feral pigs, cats, dogs and horses across Mandingalbay Yidinji country.
Djunbunji Land and Sea Rangers design and construct portable traps that are set in the East Trinity Reserve to control feral pigs (traps are also available for purchase to other ranger programs). All pigs that are trapped by the Djunbunji Land and Sea Rangers are humanely destroyed and data collected from them regarding the size, health and age of each pig. Djunbunji Land and Sea Rangers also work in conjunction with the Northern Australia Quarantine Strategy (NAQS) to provide an early warning system for exotic pest and disease detections such as Asian Honey Bees and tuberculosis in feral pigs.
Djunbunji Land and Sea Rangers also deploy remote sensor scout cameras to allow for feral animal detection throughout Mandingalbay Yidinji country. The scout cameras have proven to be particularly useful in identifying nocturnal animal movements and feral pig activity levels, which in turn allows the Djunbunji Land and Sea Rangers to modify management and trapping strategies to improve trapping outcomes.
