Austrailia has a very fragile ecosystem because of it's isolation from the rest of the world early on when the continents seperated, so the introduction of non-indigenous life causes a major strain on native populations. There's a reason marsupials died out pretty much everywhere else in the world.

They have pretty draconian laws to protect that ecosystem as well. Unfortunate but necessary there.
