Highlighted Campaign for September 2009

Kangaroo Campaign

Animal Liberation is running a campaign to try and protect the devestation caused to kangaroo populations by the gourmet dining industry.  Please read the information found at the following site: 
http://animal-lib.org.au/campaigns/120-kangaroo-campaign.html
It is really worthwhile to read the information they have compiled which outlines exactly how devestating it is to the kangaroo population in ways that would not necessarily be obvious.

Please, if you have time, write some letters to the lists of restaurants they have compiled, and ask them to stop contributing to the suffering of these beautiful animals which are a symbol of our country and deserve to be better protected by our government.
