- The university of Wollongong and NSW DECC NPWS
NSW DECC (National Parks and Wildlife) has approved a scientific license for Wollongong University to retain 6 kangaroos in very small enclosures to measure the amount of methane expelled by the animals. A study that has been done before. After this experiment the kangaroos are to be slaughtered. They intend for the experiment to be repeated with Wombats.
THIS IS TOTALLY BARBARIC AND WILL PUT THE ANIMALS UNDER TREMENDOUS STRESS!!!
For a government department responsible for the protection of native animals to give approval for such a cruel and unnecessary project is a violation of their duty to protect Australia's wildlife... Especially ironic when they are so reluctant to approve licenses to individuals and groups to care for and rehabilitate native animals!
IT IS AN INSULT TO THE DEDICATED CARERS THAT WORK SO HARD AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE TO ENSURE A FUTURE FOR AUSTRALIA'S DIVERSE AND BEAUTIFUL WILDLIFE!
We the undersigned are strongly opposed to the testing of wildlife at Wollongong Uni and the approval for such testing that will see the animals stressed and housed in inhumane conditions.
