Sign these new petition:

Australian Wildlife Protection Council

1. Never buy kangaroo meat or skin! But please also consider that consumption of all animal products causing suffering. The best way to end that suffering is to go vegan - or at least start on that road. Viva! has free help for you to do just that.

2. Order or download campaign materials to display and distribute. Why not ask a local library, sports centre, health food shop or anywhere else that might be sympathetic if you can put up a poster on a noticeboard and leave out a few leaflets?

3. Hold an information stall or organise a protest - a great way of reaching people who might not have heard about the campaign to save the kangaroos. You can hand out leaflets, collect signatures on petitions and talk to people who need more info - all vital ways of raising awareness about kangaroo slaughter. A protest doesn’t have to be a big event - even 2 or 3 people with posters and leaflets can catch the public’s attention.

4. Complain to the manager if you find a restaurant serving kangaroo meat. Walkabout Inns is the last chain of establishments in the UK serving kangaroo meat. Tell them you will boycott them as long as wildlife is on the menu. Order kangaroo meat leaflets to give to family and friends.

5. Boycott anywhere that uses kangaroo leather! Tell everyone you know that they are funding an industry responsible for the deaths of millions of kangaroos and their babies - all for the sake of a sports shoe!

6. Write letters and emails!
