Objective Summary

The new wave of threat to the kangaroo industry comes from unchallenged material on contributor generated internet sites such as Youtube, Myspace, photobucket, Wikipedia and others. Or is this in fact an opportunity? This project will enable the kangaroo industry to ensure these types of sites are loaded with positive messages about the kangaroo industry and its products. It will also ensure ongoing resources are available to counter antiindustry campaigns and spread positive industry messages in more traditional media.
