Kangaroo map

You can use this social pinpoint map to record details of specific contacts or encounters with kangaroos that they have experienced or witnessed and/or make general comments about the issue. We will collate this information and pass it onto the State Government's Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) - who is the agency responsible for kangaroo management and are preparing a Kangaroo Management Plan for the state.

*Please don't use this map to report injured kangaroos - call Wildlife Victoria on 8400 7300 or visit their website.
