Acclimatisation Society of New South Wales

Society established to procure, introduce and acclimatise exotic species of flora and fauna to a perceived alien landscape. Whilst this was a two way process, for example black swans to England, red deer and even boa constrictor were imported to Australia to augment the rabbits, goat and pigs that had come with the First Fleet.
