In the Netherlands a nature organisation and the Ministry of agriculture are thinking of a joined pilotproject where in an area (roughly 6000 hectares) no more wild boar will be shot.
They want to see what will happen to the population itself (will they regulate themselves after xx years), and what will happen to other fauna populations and flora/vegetation (predation of animals and plants).
In the UK wild boar have been extinct for a while, now the population is building in certain area's. I am looking for data or experience with changing in the biotope/habitat of animals and plants in area's where wild boar became a part of the biotope/habitat. Can any member on this forum help me with this information?
I ask this because i am part of an organisation of united regional hunters and landowners, who have reservations about this pilot project and want to gather data.
Thank you for any structural comments !
