Victorian Kangaroo Alliance Inc. is a fighting force dedicated to protecting kangaroos in our state from persecution and exploitation via the world's largest land-based wildlife trade. We advocate for these magnificent beings to be treated with respect, and inherently valued as an ancient totemic keystone species worthy of full protection.
Since colonisation, kangaroos have been unfairly maligned and persecuted, continually slaughtered and dispossessed in favour of farming and development. In Victoria, there were already far too many ‘culls’ without consideration of non-lethal alternatives, yet since the commercial industry trial began in 2014 (supposedly to reduce waste from ‘culling’) the combined average quotas have more than TRIPLED. The 2018 governmental evaluation of the 'Kangaroo Pet Food Trial' showed it may have actually increased waste, as well as being lawless, a threat to sustainability, and low-value to the tax payer. This damning report was ignored by Victorian Labor who launched the 'Kangaroo Harvesting Program', removed the need for landholder permits and opened nearly the whole state to cruel, dirty and devastating so-called ‘harvesting’.
Your support will help us keep fighting for kangaroos to be protected and respected in Victoria.
