Saltpan (2015)

Camels were imported to Australia in the 19th century from Arabia, India and Afghanistan for transport and heavy work in the outback. Feral camels now present as an ecological disaster and a moral problem in rectifying this disaster. (See BBC News, 2013)  Some see some painful parallels in the current treatment of wild camels and the historic treatment of the indigenous human inhabitants of these areas.
