RESPONSES TO DRAFT EASTERN GREY KANGAROOS CONTROLLED NATIVE SPECIES PLAN SUBMISSION FROM CONSERVATOR OF FLORA AND FAUNA AND MY RESPONSE, (shown first). 15/5/17
We await a response to my response.
The unsigned correspondence from the Conservator of Flora and Fauna and my response are below all of this information and the ‘link to this Report’.
Out of 41 Submissions that were received, 31 Submissions opposed this Eastern Grey Kangaroos Draft Controlled Native Species Management Plan, only 10 Submissions supported this Plan.
A good enough reason not to go ahead with this Plan and to abolish it.
Unfortunately there are quite a few mistakes in this Canberra Times article and link below, probably more typo type mistakes leaving out the complete words etc.
More than 2,600 Kangaroos to be violently slaughtered in 2017 based on fraudulent flawed Acts, Plans. Strategies at The 12 sites to be closed for the conservation cull are Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve, Goorooyarroo Nature Reserve, Mount Majura Nature Reserve and adjacent territory land, Kama Nature Reserve, Mount Painter Nature Reserve and adjacent territory land, The Pinnacle Nature Reserve and adjacent unleased land, Mount Mugga Mugga Nature Reserve, Isaacs Ridge Nature Reserves, …Callum Brae Nature Reserve, East Jerrabomberra Grasslands, West Jerrabomberra Nature Reserve, and Googong Foreshores. These violent killings are not culls, and are not for Conservation purposes with our Kangaroos being driven to extinction, weakening the species genetically altering our Kangaroos committed by over killing and the infertility program. This is criminal.
Kangaroos maintain a healthy well balanced eco system.

‘Earless Dragon scarcity previously coincided with kangaroo scarcity in ACT’
Don Fletcher, in “Population Dynamics of Eastern Grey Kangaroos in Temperate Grasslands,” describes how, in the 1940s and 1950s kangaroos actually became rare in the ACT due to competition by European grazing stock. Even when these stock were removed, they remained rare for some time. Salt blocks were put out in the 1960s to attract kangaroos to the Tidbinbilla Fauna Reserve, where in 1963 employees went for three months without seeing one.) 
Oddly, at the same time as kangaroos were banished from the ACT, the Earless Dragon also became scarce. It couldn’t have been because of too many kangaroos.
“The Grassland Earless Dragon was very common in the ACT up to the 1930s but there are now very few left. This is mainly because there are so few areas of its native grassland habitat remaining. There are now only two main populations known in the ACT; and there is one near Cooma in NSW.” Source: The ACT Conservation Council’:https://awpc.org.au/act-roo-killings-who-profits-behind-the-earless-dragon-mask/comment-page-1/
Don Fletcher’s PhD documents also state that the Kangaroos size became smaller in areas where they were regularly killing the Kangaroos in the fenced off areas.
This is criminal as the Government deliberately weaken the Kangaroos, altering them genetically through over killing and their infertility program, driving the species to extinction. It is strongly recommended that the violent mass Killing and violent Infertility program is immediately banned.

Dear Sir / Madam
I am writing to thank you for your submission during public consultation for the Eastern Grey Kangaroo: Draft Controlled Native Species Management Plan.
All feedback from the consultation has now been analysed and the Plan revised in light of the submissions. As the ACT Conservator of Flora and Fauna, I have approved the Eastern Grey Kangaroo: Controlled Native Species Management Plan (the Plan).
The Plan aims to maintain populations of kangaroos as a significant part of the fauna of the ‘bush capital’ and a component of the grassy ecosystems of the Territory while managing and minimising the environmental, economic and social impacts of those kangaroo populations on other plants and animals, grassy ecosystems and rural production. The Plan’s policies are grouped around kangaroo welfare; managing interactions between humans and kangaroos; managing kangaroo densities; and managing captive populations.
The revisions to the Plan made in response to the submissions received include:
· Text and a policy about the selected use of fencing to protect environmental values or stop the movement of kangaroos into particular land has been added (see Section 4.3.3 (c)).
· Information from a study on the welfare aspects of kangaroo culling undertaken in ACT nature reserves (Hampton & Forsyth 2016) has been included to address concerns about the welfare of culling and compliance with the code of practice (see Section 4.3.1).
· Text has been added making it explicit that rural and conservation culling is audited (see Section 4.3.1 and Section 6.1).
· The wording in the purpose of the plan has been revised to acknowledge that factors other than kangaroos also influence grassy ecosystems (see Section 2.2).
The consultation report, as well as the final Plan, are available from http://www.environment.act.gov.au/cpr/conservator_of_flora_and_fauna/eastern-grey-kangaroo-controlled-native-species-management-plan.
If you would like further information on how your comments were assessed please contact EPSDDComms@act.gov.au.
Thank you again for contributing to the Plan.
