ATAAC | Australian Teens Against Animal Cruelty - Native Animals


 We must support the native animals in Australia, as they cannot help
themselves in vulnerable situations such as road kill, natural disasters and
mass slaughter. Did you know that kangaroo culling in Australia is largest
commercial wildlife slaughter in the world? 



Every night a family of kangaroos going about their lives are shot after appearing in a blinding spotlight. These precious animals are shot for meat and skins. Farmers also shoot them as they are deemed to be ‘pests’. Despite legislation outlining humane methods of slaughter, an estimated 100,000 kangaroos have not been humanely shot. And does ‘humane slaughter’ even exist? If you are appalled to learn of the mass slaughter of one of our iconic emblems, please read to see how you can reduce the suffering of these peaceful creatures.

1. Please write an email to the Defence Minister Stephen Smith at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

You can outline your concern towards kangaroo culling on the Defence Department land and urge him to stop this process!

2. Email the Australian Environment Minister Tony Burke at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Again, you can express your concern towards the ongoing commercial slaughter of kangaroos. You can also mention the ‘A Shot in the Dark’ report, which exposed the suffering of both kangaroos and their joeys.

3. Please don’t buy any kangaroo meat or clothing such as leather or fur made from kangaroos

If you see an injured on the side of the road:

1.Remove the animal from any nearby threats

2.Place a towel, blanket or similar material over the animal to avoid further stress on the animal – line the box with a towel rather than any paper products. Take care as stress on the animal can result in death

3.Gently place the animal in a box and them in a warm, quiet dark room. DO NOT DISTURB. Ensure you keep your children away from the animal and do not feed the animal anything

4.Seek advice – the following recue groups can help 24/7 and are great in assisting emergencies related to native animals.
