California has legalised kangaroo products, but there has been a media blackout. It is not showing up on google. Please note this news article and help get the word out:

While we know that kangaroo predators have been extermiinated, and whilethere are possibly far more of the larger species, such as red and gray roos, most of the smaller species have been reduced by introduced animals, and are threatened in their habitats.

If you use animal products, please check exactly which species you are purchasing.

I feel I made a mistake in noting this, as the immense amount of trade over intercontinental distances is a severe problem.
For instance, Humboldt Bay, with its wildlife refuges and small-scale oyster farming, has a chance to heal from the destructive logging of the past. However heavy pressure to industrialize the area is resulting from the growing impact of shipping in other areas of the US Pacific coast. So much will be lost forever if this is done.

Consider that sheep EVERYWHERE they are domesticated are a severe problem, leading to attempts to eradicate all possible predators and competitors, by those involved.

Michael the roo harvest is very well managed. They are far better for our fragile soils and they don't emit massive amounts of methane like our cattle do.

With all due respect, we *all* emit a lot of methane. . .

You've got nothing on a cow. That's why they keep them outside.

True, but getting back to the legalizing of importing kangaroo meat, I have no particular interest in trying out products made from kangaroo, so whether they are legal or not I don't plan to buy them. For what it's worth while I am not a vegan or even a vegetarian I have largely cut out beef from my diet, preferring to go with fish or chicken.
