Feral plants? Do you mean non-native plants?

Sadly for what I have seen about Austrailia there have been many different non native wildlife brought there over the years, the rabbit, then the fox to catch the rabbit, but it diddn't as the native rodents were easier to catch. A Toad from South America that's poisious to eat flys and lava, which sadly makes the water it lives in poisionous.

Stop any more new spieces introduction, might be a good idea and the removal as best as possible of the non-native spieces that is there might be a good idea.

As for drought de-salanisation?
