Rampant Part Two aims to identify the success of introduced animals in South-East Queensland by visually exposing their enormity and ability to adapt to new environments. Pests such as Red Foxes, Cats, Rusa Deer and Cane Toads have proven difficult to control thanks to their tenacious nature and the local habitat being so accommodating of new species.

Well informed study of the background of feral animals in Australia and the assistance of researchers, park rangers and animal trappers allowed me to concentrate my efforts on several areas in the Greater Brisbane Region and create a body of work that assisted in highlighting these animals as heroes in their own right.

The presence of these animals serves as a reminder of how cautious we as people should be when tampering with previously untouched ecosystems, and how just one new introduction can lead to all manner of environmental issues arising.
