Kangaroos in Australia
Australia, in the last two decades has been a household name for jobs, study, and permanent settlement for people from all over the world, specifically Asia. It, indeed, has a significant Indian population, in addition to British, Greek, Hungarian, Bulgarian, Italian, and Spanish. Even though because of violent racial attacks on Indians, the migration policies have made it difficult for people to migrate to Australia, the country continues to be one of the top destinations for tourists all over the world to experience the nightlife, the glitz, the glamour, the museums, the beaches, the mountains, and the unique Australian kangaroos.
Kangaroos are found solely in Australia but there are macropods that are found not just in Australia but also in New Guinea. They are known to have huge, strong, rear legs, that help them make tall leaps and their strong muscular tails help them balance their gait. Sometimes they are killed for their meat, for sports recreation but this has had some opposition from the Australian population and even some animal rights activists in the international community.
The Australian Kangaroo is not just the national symbol of Australia but its images are also used in some of the currencies bills of Australia. It has come to be one of the most significant and figurative aspects of the Australian identity and image in the world, and it is also one of the reasons why tourists from around the world travel thousands of miles just to witness the wonder that is the Kangaroos of Australia.
The Kangaroos of Australia are known to be green lovers, in other words they are herbivorous animals. They are known to have no breeding cycles and therefore can reproduce all year round. Their little ones are known as joeys, and all female kangaroos have a pouch in the front where they carry their baby Kangaroos and gallop around the grasslands of Australia.
Not all Kangaroos of Australia can be hunted, even though in the past they have served to be resourceful to both the indigenous people and the first European settlers who went to Australia. They were hunted for their meat and their skin. In recent years however, the government of Australia has put the hunting of the Australian kangaroo under strict control and there are laws to check the rampant killing of Kangaroos, even though they can multiply at an alarming fast rate.
The harvesting of kangaroos in Australia is also regulated and licenses are given to hunters who could keep check their spurious growth. Kangaroo meat generates a whole lot of revenue for the Australian economy by way of their exports. Exports are made for kangaroo meat, kangaroo skin, kangaroo fur, and kangaroo leather. The top regions to which kangaroo meat, fur, skin and leather is exported(and this includes only that of Red kangaroo, Eastern grey kangaroo, Western grey kangaroo, Common Wallaroo, Bennetts wallaby and Pademelon) are the United States of America, European countries and some Asian countries.It is indeed a unique creature that providence has endowed upon Down under. And the world must, indeed do, all it can to protect it from being endangered, and worse still, extinct.
