Kangaroos are some of Australia’s most well-known and treasured animals – yet every night across this country they are the hidden victims of a cruel wildlife slaughter.
They are an iconic symbol of Australia and masses of tourists make their way ‘Down Under’ each year to catch a glimpse of their unique beauty – but as dusk falls in the remote Australian outback, kangaroos are slaughtered.
Coupled with devastating bushfires and drought, kangaroo shooting is not only cruel at an individual level, but may cause local extinctions and risk the future of the species.
This is why Animals Australia is a proud sponsor of World Kangaroo Day 2021, led by our friends at Kangaroos Alive. Help us share the hidden story of these mistreated native animals, and what Australians can do to save them.
