Help track straying roos
Help is needed to locate missing collared/tagged kangaroos. For several years kangaroos have been fitted with ear tags and lightweight vinyl collars as part of fertility control and movement research. Fertility control trials are underway in various discrete kangaroo populations around Canberra, including Weston Park, Gold Creek Country Club and Government House. Some of the animals involved in the research have over the years moved away from the research locations, for example individual collared kangaroos have recently been sighted at Mt Painter Nature Reserve and near Hall Village. It would be good if Naturemapr’s could help keep tabs on these animals so that their breeding status can be checked and further information on kangaroo movement across the urban environment obtained. If you see a tagged animal can you please take a photo and place it on Canberra Nature Map, but please don’t get any closer than 20m to an animal as we don’t want to cause them undue stress. Photos that identify the numbers or letters on the ear tag or collar are particularly valuable, as are photos showing the kangaroos pouch (so we can determine if it has a young or not) or any young at foot.
