Save The World, Eat A Camel: Scientists Urge Oz Consumers

We never imagined saving the world would be as palate-friendly as Aussie scientists make it out of be! But why the "camel", you ask? That's because the one million-plus population of camels Down Under are getting way out of control, and are also causing environmental havoc.

According to a report in the website news.com.au, Murray McGregor, an agribusiness lecturer, said that a good way to bring down the number of camels was to eat them.

"Eat a camel today, I've done it," Professor McGregor said. "It's a bit like beef. It's as lean as lean, it's an excellent health food," he added.

He said that camels might look "ugly" to some and were known for spitting, but that should not deter diners.

The report found Australia had the world's largest herd of wild camels, which has got out of control.

They are inflicting major damage on fragile desert ecosystems, water sources, rare plants and animals, and indigenous sites, the report found.

Camels also made climate change worse by burping up greenhouse gases and turning various landscapes into deserts.

These facts have made experts suggest that the barbecues of the future should be crammed with sizzling camel meat.

Australians have earlier been urged by scientists to eat more kangaroos for environmental reasons.
