The National Kangaroo Protection Coalition is an alliance of Australian and overseas Wildlife and Animal Protection groups, who are committed to closing down the commercial and non-commercial kangaroo kill. Currently 33 Australian and several overseas groups make up the Coalition.
Why do we need the Kangaroo Protection Coalition to protect kangaroos? Why doesn't the Government protect them?
Australia's unique heritage of indigenous animals has been treated with contempt and brutality since white man arrived. Australia is a nation led by soul-less politicians whose only concern is money, power and the ability to destroy this continent's ecology behind a protective wall of propaganda and extraordinary irresponsible legislation, which guarantees extinction.
The first thing that needs to be said about the betrayal of the kangaroo is that the sell out has not been confined to government, industry, politicians, media and some scientists…the kangaroo has also been sold out by the environmental movement both nationally and internationally.
Over the years, millions of dollars were raised overseas to help the kangaroo. Millions and millions, money that never came back to Australia so that desperately needed legal action could be taken, or professional campaigns funded. In spite of the mountains of evidence that the kangaroo industry is robbing Australia of a critical component of its wildlife heritage, the major Australian conservation groups have by and large ignored the plight of the kangaroo.
The kangaroo is a symbol of Australia. The bloody symbol of a nation whose leaders turned away from their moral, social and environmental responsibility. The kangaroo's fate will also be shared by the remaining unique wildlife in this great continent. Deliberate, politically induced extinction so that a few may gain from the death of a species.
A survey of tourists arriving in Australia showed that the two most favored tourism icons anywhere in the World were the Statue of Liberty, followed by the Kangaroo! Another survey taken when tourists were leaving Australia showed many were disappointed they didn't see any wild kangaroos!

Many items are made from kangaroo leather. Adidas football boots, coin purses, some baseball gloves, shoes and wallets. If in doubt, ask what sort of leather is used. If they don't know, and you think it may be kangaroo leather, don't buy it.
