Are you saying that ticking discourages a negative attitude to these species, 
and that has some bearing on how much pressure there is to eliminate them?

Could be true, but I often read of people's concerns about it here. Chris 
Baxter, to whom Rosemary replied, was pretty clear he wants Peafowl off 
Kangaroo Island.

Are you suggesting people refuse to tick any exotic species?  That might have 
the side effect of people not recording them either, then we'd have no idea 
where these populations are at all.  I agree the birding community could push 
harder on this issue, but I think the real obstacle is "bird lovers" who feed 
and encourage them, and object to any culling.
