Look at this sad, unloved town! This little country town used to have a warm, welcoming ambience that made people want to live here…but not anymore! A pest species, known as the feral pig, invaded the area and caused enormous damage forcing everyone to leave. Read more to find out what happened.
BACKGROUND: In 2014, the Feral Animals Enviro-Stories program provided kids from five schools around Australia with the opportunity to write and illustrate stories about feral animals and their impacts on both biodiversity and agriculture. Schools were supported by local Natural Resource Management organisations to help them learn about their local feral animal. This project has resulted in five books published, printed and distributed as well as interactive books developed.
