We saw that Tesco were trialling kangaroo meat in the past few weeks, so we contacted them straight away. They listened and have dumped it! They also want to meet with Viva! to discuss our further concerns about commercialising wildlife. Result!
We have just sent over 5,000 of your postcards and online messages to Iceland - demanding that they drop kangaroo meat immediately. Thank you to everyone who took the time to sign and return their postcards!
