Our kangaroos face the largest commercial slaughter of land-based wildlife on Earth. In fact almost 90 million kangaroos and wallabies in Australia have been killed for commercial purposes in the last 20 years.
The NSW government promotes, financially supports and even actively participates in the brutal killing of tens of thousands of kangaroos across our state. This is an international disgrace and is a shameful way to treat an Aboriginal totem and our national emblem.
With evidence now suggesting that the long-term survival of our Kangaroos is at risk, we’re pushing harder than ever to end the commercial slaughter of kangaroo and wallabies and close the processing industries.
Together with our MP Mark Pearson, we plan to improve wildlife legislation to ensure kangaroos and wallabies are valued and respected, and increase and enforce penalties for wildlife cruelty.
