Abstract: The growing size and impact of the feral camel population in Australia’s rangelands has emerged as a serious issue of management. The usual rangelands issues of remoteness, low human population density and limited capacity are compounded by the mobility of camels and their extreme hardiness in ostensibly hostile environments. There are commercial and non-commercial options for dealing with the feral camel population, with commercial options constrained by limited processing capacity and a market for camel products unwilling to pay the real costs of production.
