Some say 'Green' or 'Sustainable' or 'Self Sufficient' how we try to ensure we live to put a smaller footprint on our earth.

Kangaroos heading for Extinction - Online Petition

Postby minnie » Thu Oct 16, 2008 11:06 am

I'm thinking that what's happening to our kangaroos isn't sustainable so have posted here to see if anyone is interested.

I have just signed this important petition to save our Kangaroos. Would you like to see a future Australia without kangaroos? In the not to distant future they will be killed to extinction, the current rate of decline in the national population is free falling and still our government kills them. Please read the petition on the site below and then decide if you would like to sign.

If you do sign, please let others know the plight of our kangaroos and ask them to sign as well.

Thanks for this. I have no problems with hunting for food, and providing roos are farmed, I have no problem with them as a commercial food source. But we are getting shooters on open properties here, and the government hands out tags to farmers to cull roos. These culled roos cannot be used for food, they must be left to rot and a tag tied to the corps. I find it totally disgusting.
I will certainly sign any petitions.
Regards.

Have to tell you kangaroos are not farmed nor can they ever be... there's many reasons why not and for some reason I've had people think because they buy kangaroo meat in the supermarket it's from farms, they still go out shoot them and tie them to a dirty ute to put in a dirty chiller box.

I believe if someone kills one and they eat it all, then okay but the practice now they're doing at looking at selling to China for food will see the extinction, how could we ever have enough roos to send.

Thank you for signing, every signature counts.

No, that is just not on. What some people will do to make money boggles my mind!

I understand now why so many people wish that a major survival catastrophy would happen, something to turn the world as we know it back 300 years to when only survival was a basic need. These people with all this money would suddenly be no better off than anyone else, probably worse off because they have been putting their energies into making money at the expence of everyone else and suddenly they have nothing, no schemes, no useful skills, and their money is worth nothing. A new start. Yes I know about the hardships and possible loss of life, and in reality I don't wish that on other people, but just the same I do see where they are coming from.
I think it is the feeling of being so powerless to do anything.
Sorry, running on. Get me started on pet hates and there is no end to it!
Regards.

Don't worry about running on, I'm a great one when I get hot under the collar.

Certainly the more people in the world isn't making it a better place that's for sure.

A person in Melbourne told me a couple of weeks back they're getting 60,000 people per week moving to Melbourne, now how on earth can that be sustainable, it's a recipe for disaster and all they think about it how much money they'll make.

I've always thought the American Indian Prophecy says it all "Only after the last tree has been cut down; Only after the last fish has been caught; Only after the last river has been poisoned; Only then will you realize that money cannot be eaten."

Scary, but probably true.
