START A PETITION

Jun 22, 2013

Focus:Endangered Species
Action Request:Petition
Location:Australia

 

Since nobody seems to notice the PETITION on MY PAGE BILLBOARD, I am also putting it here.
 

The largest massacre of native wild land animals is taking place every night in the Australian outback. 6 million kangaroos and their babies are killed each year. Unlike the seal massacre of Canada, no large professional animal rights organizations are working to protect kangaroos. Kangaroos are killed in the remote outback where it is impossible to monitor.

 

 
PLEASE "SIGN" THIS PETITION:
 

To the Senate of Australia - Request for a moratorium on the killing:
www.gopetition.com/petitions/kangaroo-extinction.html
 
 

THE AUTHOR HAS CLOSED THE OTHER PETITION THAT WAS LOCATED ABOVE THIS PETITION SO I HAVE REMOVED IT. 

 

This petition and the one that is now closed are not petitions that I created but two that I decided to promote. It is better to promote existing petitions than to create multiple similar petitions. The author of this petition wished to stay anonymous due to concerns for safety. I hope that that does not make the petition seem less authentic.

I signed both petitions and have learned something. You have done a great service to the kangaroos and for Australia. Hope to get followups from the petitions. Thank you.

hi simon, i signed a similar petition against the kangaroo hunt about a week ago. As you point out the 4M killed is the largest wildlife slaughter of any country. Thanks for doing this - i actually don't think anything on the C2 network goes unnoticed.

Animalib, You signed on June 24, 2009.
Your signature has been delivered to:
European Union

Congratulations. You have successfully signed the petition:
Moratorium urgently needed: Kangaroos heading for Extinction.

You are signer #7867 [?]

I will also post the petitions on all the websites that I'm a member of.

I would like to add that there have been several petitions regarding the slaughter of our beautiful kangaroos but as usual the government is deaf.

Thank you for making the world aware of this sad plight for the kangaroos. Must we show no mercy? This is disgraceful and heartbreaking.

Hi Simon

Have you heard of THINKK? Check it out on Google.

In response to comment by Jackie W (Friday July 1, 2011, 6:56 pm)

(I apologise for taking so long to reply. Whenever I check my e-mail, I end up "bogged" in lots of messages from Care2; long lists of petitions, comments, etc. For a few days, I felt tired and did not get much done.)

I am aware of THINKK. They are a think tank involved with finding scientific reasons against the killing of kangaroos. I usually receive e-mails from the Australian Wildlife Protection Council (AWPC) and the World League for the Protection of Animals (WLPA). I can provide websites and contact details if necessary. VIVA-UK are also working on the campaign but they did not seem all that interested in what I was doing. The 2 petitions are not "mine" but just some that I decided to promote. Part of the reason that I ended up working on the kangaroo campaign is just that I found out about it after 2 great years on the Croatian stockmarket and I was in the position to fund the production of my own campaign materials; I attempted to make them look professional. I then decided to focus on petitions because I think that the kangaroo campaign needs more people involved; even if they just do something simple, such as "signing" a petition. It is almost impossible for me to get anybody else more involved. About 6 people from Care2 asked me about more ways to get involved but did not end up taking it further. Both people on Care2 and animal rights activists in Croatia have lots of other priorities. I have been assuming that the AWPC and/or WLPA will inform me of anything that I need to know coming from THINKK.

I am much better at collecting signatures on paper in the street than online, but since one of the petitions is being collected online only, I have no choice but to use the internet. I find Care2 to be more useful than Facebook. Animal Friends Croatia put the link to one of the petitions in a part of their website where it does not get noticed.

(I could say more but do not know if I should make my reply too long).

I edited this on March 3, 2013. I notice that sometimes it does not display properly. The petitions are NOT new and there is no need to "sign" them if you have done so in the past.

The author has closed the petition to the EU. There is a problem in which every time I edit something, the formatting gets ruined and I have difficulty in getting it right again and that the original date of publication is not displayed.
