IS EATING KANGAROO BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?
Overall, eating Kangaroo meat is more sustainable and better for the environment than most other meat consumption. As kangaroos are indigenous to the Australian environment they can get by on eating a variety of indigenous scrub and do not rely on the production of grain. Likewise, as they are wild animals they do not need to be farmed in the conventional way, which requires land clearing and the destruction of habitat.
Kangaroos also generally eat less than other grazing animals such as sheep and cattle, which places less stress on the land and requires no irrigation or use of potentially harmful synthetic inputs such as fertilisers and pesticides. They are quite literally gentler on the land too, as they have soft, light feet and therefore do not cause damage or erosion to the earth like a large herd of cattle with hooves do.
