Kangaroos: Myths & Realities
by: Wilson, Maryland & Croft, David
Australia's four largest species, the eastern & western grey kangaroo, the red kangaroo & the common wallaroo are the targets of killing for commerce in meat and hides (30 million killed from 1994-2003) and pest management control. The mindset is to treat them collectively as a problem species in spite of significant evolutionary, physiological, ecological and behavioural differences between them. Added to the ‘problem’ are a few wallaby species that are killed under the guise of pest management, especially in Tasmania. This book brings together esteemed scientists & animal advocates to argue against the killing of these "pests". Published by the Australian Wildlife Protection Council. Color photos. 264 pgs.
