    If the aboriginals were so neutral, they wouldn't have caused the megafauna to go extinct from overhunting and burning of forests...

    Yeah I was going to say...
    Aborigines rendered thousands of species extinct. Australia is essentially a desolate wasteland wildlife wise, a few stragglers remain (and flourish in part due to the unnatural lack of competition), and aborigines are largely to blame.
    If it wasn't for aborigines the first white settlers would have had crocodile sized monitor lizards, pythons bigger than anacondas, marsupial lions, arboreal carnivorous possums the size of leopards, wombats the size of buses, man eating flightless birds and etc to contend with.

    The main reason australia has so much trouble with introduced species is there are so many vacant niches in the ecosystems. Foxes, dogs, cats, pigs, rabbits, goats etc get so out of control because there's all these massive expansive wild environments with hardly any animals in them.

    And no terrestrial carnivores bigger than a cat.

    Spud there is one problem with using wild populations as food source and thats the health and hygene laws. Wild killed populations are generally harder to sell because they require all sorts of health inspections that farmed animals dont (because they are checked through out there life time). Couple that with the percentage that actually DO get found to have a paricyte, diease or fungus that prohibits use as food stock and the extra costs involved in hunting them down and transporting them and the public fear around eating hunted meat and that shoots the price up way above the farmed variaties of the same species. This is why hunting and use as a food source ARNT used to control plage proportion species like kangroos

    What about changing our ways, so not more species either die out or become plague species ?
