It's Biodiversity Month and it's time to discuss the threats to flora and fauna here in Australia. What is a feral animal and why are they so bad? Feral species of animals and plants are found in the wild but come from domesticated individuals or species introduced from other areas. They can cause damage to non-native regions by disrupting ecosystems and, in some cases, contributing to the extinction of indigenous species.
Given that humans are responsible for introducing feral species into the environment, it's important to investigate scientific responses to the issues these species cause and take action, where possible. Learn more about the topic with this package.
