AWC is a leader in the implementation of large-scale feral herbivore control including mustering, shooting and trapping as well as baiting for feral pigs. 

We have established the two largest feral herbivore-free areas on mainland Australia at Wongalara and at Mornington. 

In 2016, AWC removed from our sanctuaries over 8,200 large feral herbivores including camels, buffalo, donkeys, horses, pigs and feral cattle.
