The cull gets a green light

Share Canberra's trusted news:


THE ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal (ACAT) has decided to uphold the licences issued by the Conservator of Flora and Fauna to undertake a kangaroo cull.

“The outcome of the hearing supports the scientific basis that underpins the need to undertake the conservation cull of Eastern grey kangaroos in the ACT,” said Daniel Iglesias, Director, ACT Parks and Conservation.

“This is the second consecutive year that ACAT has confirmed the scientific basis of the need to manage kangaroo numbers in our fragile reserves.

“ACAT has ruled that culling can take place in each of the eight proposed reserves and adjacent unleased land. There is a significant volume of scientific evidence which demonstrates the impact that an over-abundant kangaroo population has on grassland ecosystems and associated flora and fauna, including several local studies and countless national studies.”
