Abstract:

In the 1920s a group of naturalists from the South Australian Flora and Fauna Board released on Kangaroo Island, some specimens of Australian wildlife which were considered in danger of extinction on the mainland. These included 18 koalas, the descendants of which have been destroying their habitat, creating a management crisis which has not yet been resolved. Other fauna shipped to the Island included the tammar Wallaby, which has also reached plague proportions, platypus, emus, mallee fowl, hairy nosed wombats, Cape Barren geese, and others. This video investigates both the positive and negative legacies of the gentlemen of the Flora and Fauna Board, and reports on research being done into the ecology of other introduced and native fauna, such as the Kangaroo Island Glossy Black Cockatoos and the native bees.
