Feral camel explosion in outback
By KAREN MICHELMORE - December 01, 2004
The nation's feral camel population could blow out to a million in a few short years if actions is not taken soon to rid the centre of the unruly animals, experts believe.
Stakeholders, including farmers, Aborigines and camel industry representatives will meet in Alice Springs to discuss the problem in the first half of next year.
Australia has the world's largest herd of wild camels, with about 500,000 of the beasts wandering the desert regions of NT, Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland.
