Work continues on Code of Practice review
The National Code of Practice for the Humane Shooting of Kangaroos and Wallabies for Commercial Purposes is currently being reviewed through a project led by AgriFutures Australia. The review is being informed through a reference group of representatives from the Australian Veterinary Association, the RSPCA, industry and relevant government agencies. The current Code was originally published in November 2008.
This project aims to deliver a revised national Code of Practice to ensure that harvesting is conducted in the most humane manner. The final Draft Code will be made available for public comment.
