Ninti One report released as feral camel cull ends

Date posted: 22 November 2013

The final report into the Federal Government's $19 million Australian feral camel management project has been released, suggesting a relatively small investment could keep the pest problem down.

Co-ordinated by Government contractor Ninti One, the program culled about 160,000 camels from Central Australia since it began in 2009, using ground-based and aerial culling techniques.

Its main aim was to reduce camel densities to about one camel per 10 square kilometres across 18 key biodiversity sites.

The report reveals the project came in $4 million under budget. The money will be returned to the Federal Government.

The project's partners, which include pastoralists, representatives from the Central Land Council, and Aboriginal land holders have gathered in Canberra to see the report presented to the Federal Government.

The report will be added to the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet bibliography once it is publicly available online.
