Over 100 years ago, Afghanis brought camels to Australia. They worked when the overland telegraph line was installed between Adelaide in the south and Darwin in the north, a distance of about 3,000 km.

Now, we have hundreds, if not thousands of wild camels roaming round in Central Australia. We have developed a camel meat industry which has been successful and most recently sent a number of camels to Qatar to help provide a different genetic stream in their camel industry.

We have many more camels than Qatar has, so it was a good deal for Qatar and Australia. 

It's ironic that the camels that cme from the Middle East are now being returned to the Middle East.

What do you think?

Millions of people smoke cigarettes. Do we have to join and share with them? What about our health, money and time? Are you with it, or against it? Some people say, it's useful for the creation of thoughts!
