There are lots of pigs and boars happily rummaging through meadows and forests, decimating the ecosystem. Wild pigs are actually an invasive species, and are a huge problem in certain areas of the country. The Ossabaw Island feral pigs are one example. Right now, the only thing keeping them from going extinct is a dedicated group of farmers off-island who breed them for heritage pork. The state of Georgia wants to eradicate the wild Ossabaw pigs on the island completely, since they disrupt the nests and eat the eggs of loggerhead turtles on the island, another endangered species.
