The Australian Wildlife Protection Council was granted $10,000 to assist with the publication and distribution costs of ‘Kangaroos: Myths and Realities’, a collaborative production of papers by scientists, animal protection and wildlife protection groups. This book aims to promote the intrinsic value of kangaroos, and their non-consumptive use for tourism. The second edition is described by Maryland Wilson, President of the Australian Wildlife Protection Council, as “a heartbreaking expose of the insidious events that have led to the present crisis facing the nation’s kangaroos” and also contains additional scientific papers and a new forward by Professor Peter Singer. Coverage of the books launch appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald and Canberra Times, as well as ABC TV and radio talkback.
