Embrace your wild side by subscribing to Wildlife Australia. It won't scratch and bite, but it's the next best thing: insights and images by those who care for nature and strive to understand it.

The natural world is powerful, and often requires interpretation. Wildlife Australia is a hub for those who value their relationship with nature and wish to enrich it with knowledge.

A subscription to Wildlife Australia won't cure lumbago, sciatica, rickets or whooping cough but it will cure two modern ailments: dislocation from nature and existential malaise.

Try it and see.

Wildlife Australia is a not-for-profit magazine and all proceeds go to support wildlife conservation projects.

When predators go missing

Surprising though it may seem, foxes and cats can contribute to ecological stability, says ecologist Jeff Yugovic. In areas with few or no remaining native predators it may be better to manage them than try to eliminate them, he says.
