This project aims to deliver a revised national code of practice for the humane shooting of kangaroos and wallabies for commercial purposes. The current Code, published in November 2008, is now due for review.
The findings and recommendations from recent scientific research conducted to examine a range of significant issues needs to be incorporated into a new Code to ensure that harvesting is conducted in the most humane manner.
A revised Code will be developed with input from the Project Reference Group and kangaroo harvesters. The final Draft Code will be made available for public comment.
