It’s an Outback Outrage
Every year in Australia, more than FIVE MILLION kangaroos, wallabies, and baby joeys are hunted down and brutally murdered to satisfy our hunger for steaks and burgers, shoes and belts. We have got to stop this profit-hungry industry from spiraling further out of control! And it starts with saving one hundred kangaroos and their tiny joeys.
In Defense of Animals has joined forces “down under” with The Australian Society for Kangaroos (ASK) and following a series of emergency negotiations, IDA and ASK are being allowed to rescue 100 kangaroos and their joeys from the Bayles Fauna Reserve in Australia after the park was issued a permit to kill them.
A volunteer team of highly experienced kangaroo handlers and a supervising veterinarian has been assembled. But with medication and transport the total rescue operation will cost at least $10,000. Every $100 you donate to IDA is enough to help rescue AND relocate one kangaroo and baby joey to a safe, new home … and ensure their long-term care.
Since this murderous man-made industry began in the 1990s, our friends at ASK have been disrupting kangaroo kills, organizing direct rescues, lobbying for protection laws, and running truth campaigns to educate the public about the connection between eating animals, and resulting impact on the wild and native animals who are killed for “competing with” sheep and cows for food and water and living space. So in addition to saving the kangaroos of Bayles Fauna Reserve, your kind donation will work to convince Australia’s government to end the cruel kangaroo killings altogether.
Please be as generous as you can. Your donation today will help prevent the immeasurable suffering of this shy and iconic species.
