Super Pigs Are The Super Villains We Deserve

and the role of the apex predator in Australia. The piglet is fast and evasive, and our dingo looks like an inexperienced hunter. From the early 19th century until today, farmers have considered dingoes pests, but there are several ways in which dingoes protect endemic species. First, they kill and outcompete smaller predators, such as feral cats and red foxes, both more recent invasive transplants. Dingoes also control populations of herbivores such as kangaroos, reducing grazing pressure on grasslands. If you're starting to get the feeling that Australia is overrun with wild animals, we haven't even gotten to the camels! From the 1870s to the 1920s, more than 20,000 camels were imported from the Arabian Peninsula, India and Afghanistan to assist expeditions into Australia's unforgiving outback.

There was a time when nothing in science seemed as absurd as the idea that there are people who live upside down, with their feet above their heads. The invention of motorized vehicles ended the camel industry in Australia, but the camels themselves remained and eventually became feral. Currently, there are more than a million of these wild single-humped ungulates roaming the outback. But wild doesn't have to just mean animals: plants can also become wild or undomesticated. These are usually crops that have escaped cultivation and become free-living populations. Like dingoes, these populations can be seen as a threat or a blessing, depending on which researcher you talk to.

It is often the case that wild crops threaten crops and can interfere with native ecosystems. In the United States, for example, wild rice causes more rice yield losses than the two major rice crop diseases. On the other hand, wild crops give us information about how these wild crops genetically evolve on their own, which has the potential to help us improve the reproduction of their cultivated relatives. Perhaps like the dingo, when given a few thousand years, these wild populations of plants and animals will naturally integrate into their non-native environments. Until then, we have to live with the consequences of our actions and do everything we can to correct the havoc that feral populations have caused around the world.
