What is Australia? A continent filled with exotic fauna, rare species of animals and plants. Hard to believe that one day all this could disappear, be erased from the face of the Earth forever! Who saved Australia?
Platypus, kangaroo, EMU graceful and funny cockatoo feel on the mainland like a fish in water. Oh, felt it while on Australian soil appeared cows. The fact that the British colonialists could not imagine their life without milk, and therefore brought to the mainland several animal species. It would seem, nothing wrong with that, but seemingly innocuous action led to unexpected consequences, informs Rus.Media.
Rich in Australian pastures did not know what dung beetles. Cow dung has been poisoning the vegetation and destroyed nearly a million hectares of fertile land. For the salvation of Australia (cows after I get back!) the British government floated the usual dung beetles. Of the 57 species introduced to the mainland, only 20 survived. They quickly adapted to the new climate and hungrily attacked the main cause of death of fertile soil.
This example proves that even the most minor violation of the ecological balance can lead to fatal consequences.
