Take Action to End the Kangaroo Slaughter

Given the outpouring of support for Australian wildlife in the wake of the country's bushfires, you might think that kangaroos and other native animals are well protected from hunting and culling. But this is not the case.

While wildlife carers are still working day and night rehabilitating burned, otherwise injured, and starving animals, the Victoria and New South Wales governments are allowing permits to be issued for the mass slaughter of kangaroos – often simply because they compete for food with introduced farmed animals raised for meat, leather, and wool.

It's outrageously easy to get a permit to kill kangaroos in these states – in fact, in New South Wales, it's called a "Licence to Harm" and applicants can even renew over the phone. 

Meanwhile, Queensland's commercial slaughter has been halted and the South Australian government has stopped plans to slaughter wallabies on Kangaroo Island after one-third of the island caught fire. 

More than 1 billion animals perished in Australia's recent fires. The death toll is high enough. 
Join us in urging the New South Wales and Victoria governments to stop issuing permits to kill wildlife.
