About

Feral hogs have invaded the preserve; these are hogs that originally were raised as livestock and either escaped or were set loose. Feral hogs destroy habitat and disrupt native plant and animals populations by disturbing the soil, uprooting native plants, and competing for food. They also prey on small animals and can transmit disease.

The Biological Sciences Technician is looking for volunteers to assist with preparing, moving, and setting-up trap components to reduce the number of feral hogs in Barataria Preserve.

Volunteers must have their own transportation, be able to work in extreme weather conditions, and have a flexible volunteer schedule.
