Join the Aussie Summer Kangaroo Count to help protect kangaroos

We need your help to protect kangaroos – and it’s as simple as taking a few minutes to fill out this survey.

Dead or alive, we want to know how many kangaroos you see in your area or out on the road this summer. Your response is invaluable to protecting kangaroos.

Kangaroos have never been in more danger than they are right now. Not only have they faced extreme habitat destruction and loss of life from the Black Summer bushfires, kangaroos continue to be intentionally killed across NSW through the use of exclusion fencing as well as slaughter for “recreation”, agricultural purposes, and commercial purposes. The commercial killing of kangaroos is still the largest commercial slaughter of land-based wildlife on Earth.

With evidence now suggesting that the long-term survival of kangaroos is at risk, we need all the help we can get to track the lives (and deaths) of kangaroos across NSW so that we can better protect them.

Whether you’re staying home or able to hit the road this summer, please take ten minutes to fill out this form and tell us what you see.

Anyone, anywhere in Australia can participate.

Survey closes February 28, 2021.


What is the Aussie Summer Kangaroo Count?

This survey is a citizen science project created by the office of Mark Pearson, NSW MP for the Animal Justice Party. Mark has been an advocate for the protection of kangaroos for many years, and since becoming an elected member of NSW Parliament has campaigned for government protection of the species.

Unfortunately, we just have no idea how kangaroos in NSW and beyond are faring right now. With the NSW Government’s response to our concerns less than helpful, we are taking it upon ourselves to find out what’s happening, by getting in touch with as many ears and eyes on the ground as possible – like you. With your help, we can take this information to ministers in NSW Parliament and show them what’s really happening.Want to do more to help?

Share this form with your friends and family, and sign the AJP NSW’s petition calling on a moratorium of all kangaroo killing in NSW:
