Much of Sydney’s North-West basin bioregion Eastern grey kangaroo population is subject to commercial shooting. This grant will be used to help fund the research required by the NSW Scientific Committee, to consider the listing of these kangaroos as endangered, by providing a case that the commercial harvest in the North-West of the bioregion is a significant contributor to the kangaroos decline, putting the population at risk of extinction. While submissions were made in December 2012 to the NSW Scientific Committee, the research project is ongoing.
