Kangaroo Management Program
NSW Commercial Kangaroo Harvest Management Plan
The NSW Commercial Kangaroo Harvest Management Plan 2012-2016 was declared as an Approved Wildlife Trade Management Plan by the Commonwealth Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities on 15 December 2012. This approval is valid from 1 January 2012 until 31 December 2016 and includes several conditions that are listed in the Commonwealth Gazette December 2011.
The management plan relates only to the commercial harvest of red kangaroo, eastern grey kangaroo, western grey kangaroo and wallaroo.
The goal of the program is to maintain viable populations of these kangaroos throughout their ranges, in accordance with the principles of ecologically sustainable development.
Handbook for kangaroo harvesters
This handbook has been prepared to help kangaroo harvesters meet OEH's requirements for the commercial kangaroo industry. In particular, it is designed to assist applicants for harvester licences by providing information about licence conditions and other requirements.
