Some of the kangaroos that are to be culled are seen on the Department of Defence property in Belconnen, Canberra May 17, 2008. Authorities said kangaroos threatened other local species through overgrazing. The Australian government had withdrawn support for a plan to relocate the kangaroos because it would cost millions of dollars and was not considered an effective use of taxpayers' money, the department said. The kangaroos will be tranquilised with a dart gun then injected with the deadly chemical Lethabarb. REUTERS/Stefan Postles (AUSTRALIA)

-PHOTO TAKEN 09SEP05- A colony of gentoo penguins rest on a minefield at Kidney Cove, at stretch of beach across the Falklands Islands' capital Stanley September 9, 2005. Some of 25,000 land mines were laid on the islands mostly by Argentine forces in the 1982 war with Britain. Falklands wildlife chooses to nest and rest in these protected minefields, previously trampled by people or overgrazed by sheep. It is the bright side of a land mine problem that is likely to remain, de-mining is difficult, if not impossible, in the peaty soils and shifting sands of this South Atlantic archipielago renowned for its wildlife.
