Ok, so how about donating land and creating a sanctuary for these critters? My first thought was relocation but looks like that was shot down in a heartbeat.

Dear Supporter,

It is with our deepest regret to inform you that the Northern Territory Government has ignored thousands of people from around the world and has started culling camels by means of aerial shooting not far from the Township of Docker River, NT. Details about the cull are very sketchy and seem to be covered by a veil of secrecy.

I realise you may have already signed our online action against the cull and we truly appreciate your support. We feel it is of the upmost importance that we continue our online email campaign to express our disappointment at this highly inhumane act. Please visit
to voice your disappointment.

We thank you sincerely for your ongoing commitment and support in helping the camels.

Kind Regards,

Michael and Lisa
