Today we feature an informative talk on predators by Dr Euan Ritchie  and how they provide many solutions to existing problems.   Among other things, Euan tells us about fire management & its relationship to the destruction of our native species,  how a  landscape of fear can be a good thing and the best way to approach the issue of feral cats.

 

Arian Wallach takes us through the 2nd part of "the Black Dog series".

Switching partridges and pear trees in the run up to Christmas with cane toads and other usual suspects of destruction in our environment , Arian sheds light on the  complex web of costs & benefits  introduced species contribute to biodiversity in Australia.

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.
