"The Kangaroo and the Golden Wattle are official symbols of the nation of Australia. The wattle was chosen for its “green and gold” colouring, and the kangaroo for its distinctiveness and inability to walk backwards. The Grey Kangaroo (Macropus Fuliginosus) is now considered a pest in much of Australia due to the impact of environmentally insensitive farming methods. The Golden Wattle (Acacia Pycnantha) has become the corporate logo of Australia, depicted in gold foil and (to many) resembling the coronavirus, and considered a failed design. Australia’s environmental policy continues to move backwards, entertaining the interests of a wealthy few and ignoring international breakthroughs in related technology and research.
