How did the White Australia Policy limit the growth of multiculturalism in Australia during the 1900’s? The immigration Act 1901 was an act of the Parliament of Australia which limited immigration, and tried to exclude all non-Europeans from living and working in Australia. The “White Australia” policy was the name given to a group of laws that stopped non-Europeans from coming to live in Australia.

The Silver Fox Industry on PEI The reign of the silver fox fur industry in PEI lasted from 1900 to 1950. Fur farming is the practice of breeding or raising certain types of animals for their fur. The more rare the fur colour, the more expensive it was. The fur industry typically involves the capture of wild animals that are put in captivity and breed until the desired “look” for the offspring is obtained and once there is a sufficient number of this type of animal they are killed and sold for their pelts.
Australian vision is made up of unique and special characteristics that can be seen or imagined in people’s mind to discuss about Australia. It is a representation of Australia’s distinctive nature. It is visualised the beauty and majesty unique to this nation.

In the poem ‘The Snow-Gum’ and ‘wombat’ portrays celebration and appreciation of Australia’s fauna and flora.
This was all through the persistency of the protesting and riots. It as was stated by the Australian government “The Aboriginal Land Rights Act. The Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976 was the first attempt by an Australian government to legally recognize the Aboriginal system of land ownership and put into law the concept of inalienable freehold title. The Land Rights Act is a fundamental piece of social reform.” (History Of Land Rights Acts , n.d.)
After centuries of injustice, both America and Australia were sick of racial inequality and discrimination. The American Civil Rights movement was led by activists such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks and had hundreds of thousands of supporters. Their quest for justice inspired the Aboriginal people of Australia to fight for their own civil rights, a fight which changed Australia forever. Similarities can be drawn between the European invasion of America and the European invasion of Australia and both Native Americans and Aboriginal Australians fought for civil rights. After years of protests, court cases and campaigning both nations are on the road to equality.
The First Fleet is known today as the first eleven ships that carried the convicts that are now recognised as the Founders of Australia. (Hill, 2008.) In 1787, 1500 criminals were shipped off to the land of Australia found by Captain James Cook, from Portsmouth, England. The voyage was nearly 20,900 kilometres and it took 252 days. The European settlers, had a significant impact on the land and people of Australia, including the introduction of disease, convict labour, and malnutrition.
Before that, it was simply a collection of 6 British colonies. They partly self-governed but they were under the law-making power of the British Parliament. Many people had wanted Australia to maintain the British heritage which means only white people can be allowed into Australia, creating the ‘White Policy’. Because of this, non-Australians could not help in the war, no matter how much they wanted to.

Australia is still Australia, riding around on our kangaroos wearing our silly hats, but the real identity of Australia is so much deeper. The problems we have now may not be the same problems we have later, but Australians will always remember them as being what has made Australia what is
The early white settlers inhabited the Cobourg Peninsula where the soil there was good for growing their produce, but there were no animals to help with the heavy work. In 1826 around 80 Swamp Buffalo were brought to Melville Island and Cobourg Peninsula from Timor and Kisar. Swamp buffalo were primarily introduced to provide assistance to farmers and as a source of meat and hide for the early white settlers, as there were no other large, hooved animals that inhabited north Australia at that time. Swamp water buffalo can be characterised as they have a stockier build with short limbs and huge swept-back crescent-shaped horns. They prefer to spend most of their time coating themselves in mud and wallowing in swamps and waterholes.
The six subspecies of island fox on the Channel Islands most likely evolved from a single species due to allopatric speciation. Allopatric speciation happens when a population of a species is divided into multiple populations (usually due to geographical reasons), which then develop separately to the point where the populations can no longer interbreed to produce fertile young, thus creating new species. According to the article ¨The Channel Islands - The Galápagos of California¨ by Paul Narguizian, the northern channel islands were connected during the Pleistocene Ice Age, approximately 18,000 years ago - when sea levels were significantly lower” (Narguizian 2). However, as the ice melted and raised the sea levels, the islands became separated,
