Support the kangaroo harvest

Kangaroos are well-adapted to surviving the environmental challenges of living in Australia.  For thousands of years they have been sustainably harvested by Indigenous Australians to the long-term benefit of both humans and kangaroos.  What could possibly make greater environmental wisdom than Australians continuing to value and sustainably harvest native species that belong here rather than relying solely on introduced species like cattle or sheep?  Further, because kangaroos emit almost no methane, they are clearly the most environmentally-friendly meat we can eat.


The Australian government has strict controls to ensure the kangaroo harvest is both sustainable and humane.  Kangaroo populations, after 40 years of commercial harvest, are still the same as the long run average and almost certainly more abundant than they were before Europeans arrived.  There are over 25 million kangaroos and they are not endangered.


Radical animal rights activists want the EU to ban imports of kangaroo products.  EU Parliamentarians need to understand that doing so would be tantamount to supporting environmental vandalism in Australia.  Please sign this petition and make sure they get this message. 

The kangaroo industry is sustainable and environmentally wise.  It is well regulated by Australian governments at both State and Federal level.  It is an essential environmental management tool in the Australian Rangelands.

The kangaroo harvest is supported by the vast bulk of professional Australian ecologists.

It is a chance for Australian's to utilize their land in a production system adapted to it, rather than imposing on it European agriculture.

If you are lobbied by radical animal liberationists to oppose the kangaroo harvest please stop and listen to the people who know the truth of kangaroo management.  Kangaroos are super-abundant and sustainably managed.  The kangaroo harvest is a true success story in wildlife management and utilization.
