After six years of fighting, we finally got what we wanted: an inquiry into kangaroos in NSW.
This is our opportunity to find out what’s really happening to kangaroos and other macropods, and expose the cruelty so many kangaroos are victim to.
The inquiry’s first hearing is kicking off tomorrow (Friday, 11 June) with the second to follow on Tuesday, 15 June.
Both are public hearings, which means you are invited to attend.
Macquarie Room, NSW Parliament House, Macquarie Street, Sydney
Friday 11 June: 9:45am until 4:15pm
Tuesday 15 June: 9am until 5pm
Attending these hearings is a powerful way for you to stand up for kangaroos and support the work of witnesses fighting for the protection of kangaroos – like Animal Defenders Office, Kangaroos Alive, THINKK, Wild2Free and Uncle Max.
Because of COVID, there will be some restrictions on the number of people allowed in the hearing room. We have been advised that if numbers exceed the room limit, inquiry staff will ask people to step outside.
Can’t make it? The hearings will be webcast live – I will provide a link for you all to watch on the day of each public hearing: make sure you’re following me on social media, or you can keep an eye on the NSW Parliament website.
