Abstract
As the country prepares for a federal election later this year, this presentation provides a timely overview of the key federal animal protection issues that we as citizens should be asking our representatives about. Major issues include the live animal export trade, the commercial hunting of kangaroos, and the need for an independent office of animal welfare.
