Quantifying the population dynamics of camels in arid and semi-arid rangelands
This project will use genetic analysis to assess whether there are useful population 'boundaries' of camels which can be used to determine appropriate management units whereby reinvasion effects will be reduced.
Developing a coordinated and strategic program to manage the impacts of feral camels
Feral camels are distributed throughout Australia’s rangelands and are doubling in number every eight years in some areas. They feed on over 80 per cent of available plant species and pose a major threat to the grazing industry and natural environment into the future. This project will bring together government agencies and key landholders to develop an action plan to reduce the spread and population increase of camels.
