Protect kangaroos and joeys from brutal killings for profit

Few Australians are aware that our national icon has become the target of a brutal slaughter. The Federal Government continues to give shooters a green light to kill millions of these gentle animals this year — all for the sake of profit. Urge the Federal Environment Minister to put an end to the cruelty.

Mothers will be shot. Orphaned joeys will be decapitated. Some will simply starve…

Hidden far from the eyes of the public, the commercial kangaroo kill occurs in isolated locations, often in the remote Australian Outback, which makes effective monitoring nearly impossible. ‘Useless’ orphaned joeys are decapitated or swung forcibly against a towbar. Some simply starve or are picked off by predators without the care of their mum. Of the millions of native kangaroos who are shot and killed every year, it’s unknown how many more escape wounded, only to endure a long and painful death.

Despite the kangaroo slaughter industry benefiting from misconceptions about kangaroo populations, the truth is that kangaroos are being slaughtered purely for money — fuelled by the international trade in kangaroo leather and meat products. Not only is the trade unnecessary and inherently cruel, as highlighted in the acclaimed documentary film ‘Kangaroo’, experts are warning that the relentless slaughter is placing increased pressure on kangaroo numbers, putting the future of this unique species at risk.

If you believe that our national icon should be celebrated — not slaughtered — please take action today! Use the form above to urge the Federal Environment Minister to end the cruel commercial slaughter of kangaroos.
