Sorry to say that the Australian government is proposing to slaughter camels because they generate green house gas.

Here is a petition to try to get it stopped.

I have travelled through most of Australia's deserts and spent 20 years living and working in northern WA. You must be blind not to see the environmental damage!! Yes we need to keep some but not all

if man has to be culled who is the first to put their hand up and say i will go first who gives the right to say that another has to die for the sake of over population control,camel and other feral animals are different they destroy the eco system,plus who's going to fit the costs of rounding up and transporting wild camels I don't have the money (do you)?p.s I don't like animal cruelty as much as the next person

Glasshouse Greenies.
by: Phil

It must be lovely driving through and looking at the beautiful animals we call Camels. But I ask you, in your towns, do you get pest exterminators and tins of moretin to eradicate your pest. Do you swat and kill mossies and flys, trap or poison mice and rats?. Same out here, they are pests, what is the difference.

Do your reasearch.

Those who live in glass houses.

Why is it always animals who need to be culled???
Be realist now humans have, and will continue to rape this earth and cause more degrigation than any living creature-----WHO introduced the camel in the first place---HUMANS. so why now are they a pest, why do we have to kill every thing that is good, not it's fault for being here in the first place. come on out of the ivory towers you so called governers.

Camel Cull
by: Rod

Camels need to be culled, not for green house gases but for the destruction they do to the environment and the harm caused to native animals.

There must be a better way to solve the camel problem
by: Rita

Hi J,

Reading the proposal to cull camels in Australia for carbon credits is the most ridiculous story I have ever heard.
I sincerely doubt that killing hundreds of thousands camels and sell the carbon credits to national and international green gas polluters will help our planet one iota.

Sure, the Australian government has to find a way to reduce the immense amount of feral camels in the Australian deserts. The fact that the camel population has grown too big and causing problems to the environment and communities is not new.

But killing them and let the carcasses rot in the Outback is a waste of resources.
Knowing that the milk of one camel would safe a few children from starving in other parts of the world, makes me think this can't be right.

Hopefully, a bright mind comes with better solutions to solve the camel problem in the Australian Outback.
