In the 1500's Spanish explorers brought a population of pigs to the Americas.  These pigs became the foundation population for both domestic and feral pigs; one breed of which is the Ossabaw, a feral breed found on Ossabaw Island, off the coast of Georgia.  The Ossabaw is the closest genetic representative of historic Spanish stocks because the population remained on the island where it did not come into contact with mainland breeds.  Currently it is not possible to import the animals directly from Ossabaw Island due to quarantine restrictions. However small groups of these hogs, descendents from those brought from the island in the 1970s, can be found on the mainland and are in need of major conservation effort
