Eradication of Silver Pheasants, Lophura nycthemera (L) from Porongurup National Park, Western Australia



Eradication of Silver Pheasants, Lophura nycthemera (L) from Porongurup National Park, Western Australia



Western Australian Naturalist 24(2): 111-114



Long (1981) summarised the establishment and eradication of a small but rapidly increasing population of Silver Pheasants (Lophura nycthemera L.) from Porongurup National Park, south-western Western Australia. Nevertheless many people remain unaware of the incident. This note records the event in more detail, particularly the strategy used to eradicate the population, and warns of the potential for this species to establish feral populations in wet sclerophyll forests in the State.
