Semi-arid rangelands the focus of Kangaroo survey
Understanding the social drivers towards wildlife management decisions are critical for land managers and often pose challenges relating to ecological, social, cultural and economic issues. A new survey being undertaken by Bush Heritage and RMIT University is looking to investigate the attitudes of residents across the arid rangelands.
Understanding the social drivers towards wildlife management decisions are critical for land managers and those involving kangaroos have little differences with any other.
It’s a divisive topic with a range of challenges that are not limited to ecological, social, cultural and economic issues.
A survey on kangaroo management in the semi-arid rangelands of south-eastern Australia is a collaborative project led by Bush Heritage Australia and RMIT University designed to investigate attitudes across Australia's arid rangelands.
Information collected will help to generate a better understanding of the perceptions of kangaroo management in the region, including how to make improvements.
The survey consists primarily of short, multiple choice questions and should take about 10-15 minutes to complete. It will close in late December.
