This chapter discusses ASV’s involvement in the transfer of animals between colonies, its knowledge about the transferred animals, and the subsequent transformation of the environment. The British Empire acclimatization survey recorded questions about organisms suitable for each colony and which organism each colony would like to see acclimatized within its boundaries. The animals listed within ASV’s guidebook, Answers Furnished, reveal mammals, birds, fish, and other species native to other countries. The success and failure in acquiring African animals and Indian animals reveal ASV’s climatic, cultural, and scientific imagination and helped Australian acclimatizers understand how the distribution of animals across the world has changed the environment of colonies. The program shows the establishment and cooperation of networking among the imperial government and colonial officials.

Keywords:   ASV, Transfer of animals, Answers Furnished, acclimatization survey, African animals, Indian animals, Australian acclimatizers, imperial government, colonial officials
