    I believe Australian wildlife plays a big part in the ecotourism of our country. We are blessed to have so many endemic species plus many rare and beautiful organisms calling Australia home. Wildlife need to be looked after, acknowledged and respected, as they are as much a part of the environment as we are.

    As for wildlife shooting as a tourism opportunity… I greatly dislike it. However, I have friends down south who help out culling rogue kangaroos - its so debatable.

    Wildlife shooting as a tourism opportunity? Its not a good idea. Whilst there are feral cats/foxes and the like, what sort of impression does that give foregin visitors? That we enjoy killing animals as a sport?
