OUR CAMELS - FERAL OR THOROUGHLY AUSTRALIAN?

A recent paper written by Leah Gibbs, Jennifer Atchison & Ingereth Macfarlane & published in Geoforum raises many questions about the place of camels in Australia.

When do we accept that a species belongs here? What does the hidden story of the camel have to tell us about our cultural development when it comes to ethnicity?

While some view camels as ferals to eradicate others are building up their camel herds to eat unwanted weeds.   We share a rich mingling of living history with camels and just like us, they are here to stay - whether we like it or not.

Tune in  as we chat with Dr  Leah Gibbs.
