Introduced Animals in Danger

Tuesday 19th September / posted by Will Backler

Australia is said to have the largest wild population of camels in the world after being introduced to Australian during the 19th century.

To put it into perspective, in 2008 Australia’s camel population was estimated at about one million and this was projected to double every 8 to 10 years.

However, camels weren’t the only introduced animal to Australia that are seen as pests and are at risk of possible eradication.

Dr Arian Wallach, ecologist with the Centre for Compassionate Conservation at the University of Technology in Sydney spoke to Kylie Sturgess on The Mag this morning to tell us more about megafauna and introduced species.
