Over the last five years a wealth of information relevant to the commercial harvesting of kangaroos has been published, especially within the field of kangaroo population dynamics. Most of this research stems directly from programs that were established to monitor kangaroo populations and set sustainable commercial harvesting quotas. This highlights the commitment of Australian wildlife management agencies to the principles of active adaptive management.
