Support for the kangaroo industry from Ecological and Conservation NGOs
The kangaroo industry enjoys wide support from professional environmental NGO’s. A number of prominent NGO’s have policies in support of it including:
Wildlife Queensland does not oppose this sustainable wildlife industry as the programs are underpinned by science. In fact these programs ensure kangaroo populations remain sustainable, viable and that the rangelands environment and their wildlife are not threatened by unregulated kangaroo numbers which could lead to serious bio-diversity loss. This is not an emotive, hypothetical statement. At this very moment wallaroos (one of the commercially harvested species) are exerting pressure on the habitat of the nationally listed vulnerable yellow footed rock wallaby in the Grey Range area of western Queensland.
