top of the problem, we should take it."
A FERAL CAMEL CULL may have halved the population of the wild animals across Australia over the past four years, according to a report.
Camels introduced to Australia
Jan says pinpointing an exact number of feral camels is very difficult. "We've taken out 160,000 in this project. We also believe that potentially 100,000 camels died in the Simpson Desert as a result of a lack of feed and drought."
"Most people would prefer these animals went to some kind of productive use," says Jan Ferguson, managing director of Ninti One, the organisation behind the project.
Wayne Boardman, a lecturer in wildlife and conservation at the University of Adelaide, says the cull is a step forward. "Camels are introduced and have not coevolved with the Australian landscape they are not part of our natural heritage and they are contributing to greenhouse gas emissions."
Camel numbers halved in national cull
"If you neglect management, the population will soon soar and the costs involved to control the numbers in the future will increase many times," Wayne says. "Now we have a good opportunity to get on Adidas Primeknit Black Boots
In results released this week, the Australian Feral Camel Management Project (AFCMP) claims camel numbers have been reduced to about 300,000, down from an estimated 600,000 in 2008, due to a variety of culling methods including shooting and transportation to abattoirs.
The AFCMP says camels take their toll on environments and biodiversity by overgrazing and fouling water supplies. In addition, they can destroy Aboriginal cultural sites and farm infrastructure, such as fences and water points, as well as threatening human safety by wandering onto roads and airstrips.
Wayne says the crucial matter is to maintain control of the numbers with further funding, as camel populations can increase by up to 10 per cent per year.
Run in collaboration with 20 organisations, including the RSPCA and the Australian Camel Industry Association, the project covered more than 3 million square kilometres of affected land. Traditional landowners and pastoralists were given Adidas Los Angeles 12 three options: ground based shooting, aerial shooting or trucking the camels to abattoirs for commercial use.

"However, when they are in significant numbers, doing damage to communities or environmental assets, people want them Adidas Neo High Top

Although Wayne acknowledges that some people have ethical issues with culling, he believes it is a logical solution. "It can be a contentious issue, however, as long as culling is done in the most humane way possible and the animals' welfare is considered throughout, I believe it's the right thing to do."
