K is for...........



Kookaburra, Koala, Kangaroo...iconic Australian fauna. I love the uniqueness of our native animals. It's a shame that some are so common that we take them for granted and even undervalue their place in the environment. For example, the kangaroo is often considered a pest in areas where it breeds prolifically and competes for pasture land with domestic food animals. It ends up on the wrong end of a culler's gun and becomes fertilizer, ugh boots or dog food. Does any other country do this to an animal that has pride of place on their coat of arms? I've heard all the arguments about controlled culling. I have read that a species that is hunted under strict regulations will ultimately benefit.....there are probably statistics to prove this, but I can't get my heart (or head) around this.

I didn't realize that about kangaroos - how heartbreaking. We had an issue with deer here in the States, but they aren't as iconic as the Kangaroo. Still, I find it hard to blame the poor things, as our land development encroaches more and more on their natural habitat.

I'm enjoying your pictures on the A to Z journey!

Thankyou, glad that you like them.

It is almost inevitable that the adjoining spaces between human habitation and animals' environments become a war zone, with most of the casualties on the animals side.

15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks!
