Petitions to the European Parliament to ban EU imports of kangaroo products do more harm than good

In the absence of a commercial industry, increased conservation and pest culling (with poorer animal welfare outcomes) would still need to occur to manage the populations of certain species.

  • A strictly regulated and ethical commercial industry has the ability to make use of kangaroos that would otherwise need to be discarded.
  • It ensures kangaroos are harvested humanely by licensed and qualified shooters, in sustainable numbers.
  • Instead of banning products, any issues need to be addressed through research – this is where the effort should be concentrated.
