Time to face one of the rangelands' most emotive issues

Lloyd, D. (1989) Time to face one of the rangelands' most emotive issues. Elders Weekly, 27 July 1989. pp. 40-41 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Newspaper article by David Lloyd.

Production at Nambi Station is limited by the ever-increasing kangaroo population. The land at Nambi has been improved such that approximately 30,000 kangaroos thrive there where almost none were recorded only a few generations ago.

The kangaroos are an insurmountable problem because any improvements to the quality of the land for sheep also encourages the kangaroos to stay. The market for kangaroo meat was limited to pet food only, meaning there was little advantage to Nambi farmer, David Fitzgerald, culling the population.
