AJP Ballarat Regional Group is proud to present a screening of
This groundbreaking film reveals the truth surrounding Australia’s love-hate relationship with its beloved icon. The kangaroo image is proudly used by top companies, sports teams and as tourist souvenirs, yet when they hop across the vast continent some consider them to be pests to be shot and sold for profit. KANGAROO unpacks a national paradigm where the relationship with kangaroos is examined.
Kangaroos are a native species in Australia, who are on the receiving end of some incredibly violent, destructive and torturous activity.
Not only are they hunted down and hit by cars, but there are countless kangaroos being 'land locked' by habitat shrinkage and encroaching estate development.
One of these areas where they are losing their homes is Epping, where there is a dedicated group of people trying to to give the roos a chance from being killed - by trying to get them relocated. We thank the Australian Society for Kangaroos for their amazing work over the years to try stop the needless killing of these incredible animals.
Our government is trying to put terrible anti-wildlife laws in place , and we are constantly battling for the rights of all animals' lives to be considered as Australian and for them to have the right to life with little interference.
Doors open at 6pm for munchies (please bring a vegan share plate!) with the movie starting at 7pm.
