@ AScomment: It’s about the government giving its support to this icon.
Some mentoring may be beneficial rather than heavy handed tactics.
As someone pointed out, the government can’t even get its own arse in gear, or for that matter our taxpayer money.
At least the THF hasn’t put us in any debt !
At least the THF runs on passion unlike the government who is run by parasites.
I’m a director and a CEO so I understand the importance of good governance but also understand the importance of mentoring over bullying.
It’s a pity the government can’t sort its own mess out first.
I say apologise to Liz and the crew and offer some genuine assistance.

Why the NT Govt sacked the volunteers managing an icon
Again I say, perhaps it’s one of the only booming tourist attractions, so the government wants it so they can tick the box that says their advertising campaigns are working.

A troubling snapshot of disadvantage
It was once the parents’ responsibility and when that was stopped it became the school’s responsibility, then the employer’s. It’s time the parents were allowed and made to take on the responsibility.

@ Ian Sharp: I can appreciate the explanation. The saying monkey see monkey do has been used for eons. It has been allowed to become sensitive. People are way too sensitive these days. If it was intended as a racial slur, then it’s inappropriate but if it was meant to demonstrate that children do what they see, then so be it.


Shooting, not selling feral camels
@ Chris Le Page: I agree with your comments. The logistics of mustering and transportation is a real issue. You would need to set up trap yards and have feed and water available and possibly cool rooms.
You could then slaughter and dress or transport them live.
None of this is insurmountable, it’s more a question of people’s drive and ambition. This would also include the work in having a pre arranged market for the meat.
I believe there is already a market so the success of this business only boils down to the question, is there commitment? So is there?

@ Ian Sharp: Ian, I re-read the comment and I still don’t get it. Perhaps you could explain.
