In The Ferals that Ate AustraliaGuy Hull details history and toll of the 45-odd foreign animal species that have contributed to the appalling decline of native Australia, their assault on agriculture, and the modern strategies that are - hopefully - reclaiming the country for our native fauna and all Australians.


Isolation was once the impenetrable barrier that protected Australia and its unique fauna. But a little over two hundred years ago a foreign power took possession and brought with it the foreign animals which now dominate the country's ecosystem. They are the enemy within.

Since that time, around 10 per cent of Australia's endemic terrestrial mammalian species have become extinct.Today Australia is dealing with the damage caused by all hard-hooved animals, domestic and feral.

Yet the bigger feral story is the ravages of acclimatisation, as new settlers tried to make the colony more like their homeland and released the rabbit, the fox, the hare, feral cats, common mynahs, starlings, sparrows, redfin perch, and the many other invasive species that have brought natural Australia to its knees.

Our country is now viewing feral animal eradication as a national issue requiring unified action plans. Using the latest technical and biological innovations, science is offering realistic hope of addressing the feral problems.

    Everyone should read this!

    This was a purchase purely from the title, because I am interested in ecology and what we have done to this country in such a short amount of time, and I am really glad I bought it. Everyone should read it.
