Elephants and rhinos in Australia 'could control damaging wild grasses' | Environment | guardian.co.uk

Elephants and rhinoceros should be introduced to the Australian outback to control the impact of damaging wild grasses, according to an Australian professor of environmental change biology

I believe it was a distant ancestor of mine who won the gold prize for successfully transporting a pair of breeding rabbits to Australia, that worked out well....


There's only one slight snag in this plan. Only the white rhino is a grazer and feeds primarily on grasses; the black rhino and elephants are browsers and fees primarily on trees and bushes.
Back to the drawing board, methinks!
