of nature's most curious oddities.

Conservation and Ecotourism in Australia have been given special attention because of its diversity of ecosystems and unique and curious species. The displacement of indigenous people is also an issue, but there are also many fine examples of indigenous culture being preserved in Australia where there is, in fact, a quite impressive aboriginal affairs program.

 

 Australia’s curious species include such marsupial wonders as the kangaroo and koala, the saltwater crocodile, the duckbill platypus, and many more. There are also many examples of exotic species that have thrived after introduction and forever changed the Australian ecosystem.
