The 2014 kangaroo population estimate for all species was 17,172,530 kangaroos. The 2015 annual quota was set at 2,701,593 kangaroos. The actual harvest for 2015 was 13.2% of the quota, and only 2.1% of the total population. 92% of the harvest was male. It is considered that the 2015 harvest was well within the limits of a sustainable harvest.
