We call on the Sunshine Coast Council to list coastal Eastern Grey Kangaroos as a Species of Local Significance under the Sunshine Coast Planning Scheme 2014 in order to conserve this species in the region, particularly in areas undergoing urban growth

Over 40% of eastern grey kangaroo populations were found to have declined in the Sunshine Coast region from 2000 - 2015, in arecent study from the University of the Sunshine Coast. This study found that kangaroo declines were found to be related to human population growth rates and the amount of natural area and that kangaroo populations were likely to continue to decline if projected human population growth rates continued (Brunton et al. 2018). Since then, data collected by Wildlife Rescue Sunshine Coast (WRSC) has revealed an increase of over 750% from 2016 to 2018 in Eastern Grey Kangaroo deaths, due to car strikes. At least 271 kangaroos were hit by cars during this period. Declines in kangaroo populations have also been inked to kangaroo-vehicle collisions in the Sippy Downs area (Brunton et al. 2018b)...

Thank you!!
