In times of severe drought, Emus will wander thousands of miles in search of water and are forced to the highway edge to feed because condensation run-off from the road promotes the growth of grass. Drought is severely affecting this region in Australia. The situation is dire for those relying on the Murray-Darling River system. This once majestic river system occupies and supports four of Australia’s several states and in places has been reduced to a mere trickle.Locations:Australia-New South Wales-Oceania-PooncarrieDate:1 Jan, 2007Credit:© Dean Sewell / Oculi/Agence VU / GreenpeaceMaximum size:3504px X 2336pxKeywords:Birds-Climate (campaign title)-Climate change-Climate change impacts-Day-Drought-Dry-Global warming-KWCI (GPI)-Outdoors-Roads-TreesShoot:Drought Documentation AustraliaDrought is severely affecting farmers and graziers in Australia. The situation is dire for those relying on the Murray-Darling River system. This once majestic river system occupies and supports four of Australia's several states and in places has been reduced to a mere trickle. Graziers already facing economic hardships are being forced to re-evaluate stock numbers, prompting large livestock sales throughout the country.
