Eat more Camel and Kangaroo to stop climate change!
Report co-author Murray McGregor, an agribusiness lecturer, said a good way to bring down the number of camels was to eat them.
“Eat a camel today, I've done it,” Professor McGregor told AAP.
“It's beautiful meat.
“It's a bit like beef. It's as lean as lean, it's an excellent health food.”
The Desert Knowledge Cooperative Research Centre, which wrote the report, found Australia had the world's largest herd of wild camels.
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.
Australians have already been urged to eat more kangaroo for environmental reasons.
National climate adviser Ross Garnaut recently said beef and lamb had a high carbon hoof-print, and told people to eat kangaroo instead because it would cut greenhouse gas emissions.
