This article from the New York Times discusses the effects of recreation on 
nature. Surprisingly, one study found that snowmobiles had less effect on moose 
than cross country skiers - the animals were less afraid of the machines they 
could hear coming and which soon left, than the skiers who they couldn't hear 
as well and which stayed longer.

Not a very Australian example, but it makes you wonder if we birders might have 
more effect than we think, wandering slowly and quietly through the bush 
looking at stuff.<>
