Stop Killing Kangaroos and Wallabies

Stop killing kangaroos and wallabiees

The Australian bushfires have already claimed the lives of an estimated 1.25 billion animals. With many weeks of summer yet to come, we’re far from out of the woods.

It will be months, maybe years, before we can accurately assess the impact this disaster has had on animals and the environment. There is a real possibility that we have lost several species forever.

While the media gleefully covers the government aerially dropping food for some fire survivors and the tireless work of wildlife carers, they fail to mention that at the very same time, others continue to be killed.

Queensland state government has placed a temporary suspension on the killing of kangaroos. Although nothing short of a national ban is good enough to stop the suffering, as a bare minimum, NSW must urgently follow their lead and issue an urgent ceasefire as well.

Please join us in calling for an immediate suspension on the killing of kangaroos and wallabies. They need your help now more than ever.

  1. Fantastic website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other knowledgeable individuals that
    share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please
    let me know. Thanks!

  2. Seriously- what is wrong with all our politicians? You are so out of touch with reality in this state and country. Every night thousands of kangaroos are still being slaughtered under the guise of being a pest. You issue “Licences to Harm” native wildlife and agree to the “National Code of Practice for the Humane Shooting of Kangaroos and Wallabies for Commercial Purposes”.

    To quote from this obscene document.

    EUTHANASING POUCH YOUNG AND YOUNG AT FOOT
    The following conditions apply.
    (i) Where euthanasia is carried out using a blow to the head, the blow must be delivered with force sufficient to crush the skull and destroy the brain. The blow should be delivered with a suitably hard and heavy blunt instrument. The shooter must confirm that there has been lethal damage to the brain and that the animal is dead.
    (ii) Immediately after euthanasia, the shooter is required to examine each animal to confirm death. The shooter must check that there is no body movement, breathing and heart beat to indicate that the animal is alive.

    I look forward to exposing your State Government along with the Federal Government to the world at large who are watching very closely. This situation is much worse than the baby fur seal industry of Canada in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
    You and your people should hang your heads in shame for allowing such animal cruelty and acts of bastardry to occur in 2020.
    We are coming for you and will not letup until this industry ceases to exist in Australia.

  3. Enough….profit must NOT come before protecting our natural heritage…if only we would protect our wildlife over stupid man made heritage buildings that we waste so much money on!!!!

  4. With so many kangaroos and wallabies having been killed in the bushfires the killing must end there. These beautiful animals do not deserve to be killed or culled.

  5. Leave them alone – let them live – they have the right to their lives just as we do. Ban the hunting and killing by blood lusting killers.
