A recent paper written by Leah Gibbs, Jennifer Atchison & Ingereth Macfarlane & published in Geoforum raises many questions about the place of camels in Australia.

While some view camels as ferals to eradicate others are building up their camel herds to eat unwanted weeds.Tune in as we chat with Leah Gibbs.
