Animal welfare and sustainability of the Australian kangaroo harvesting industry
Commercial harvesting is currently the only effective and relatively humane method of reducing the broad scale abundance of kangaroos and their negative impacts on primary production and the environment. Harvested kangaroo populations continue to be monitored under a range of harvest regimes and environmental conditions, providing a stronge understanding of their population dynamics. This project aims to produce a detailed rteport compiling the current state of knowledge on a range of aspects of harvesting and new information on areas of carbon and methane emissions, animal welfare, and improvements to harvest management. New information will also be generated to gain a thorough understanding of the impacts of a male-only harvest and determine the welfare impacts of harvesting on kangaroos.
