Coffs Harbour Community Survey - Living with Kangaroos
Eastern grey Kangaroos are an appealing and iconic feature of the Australian bush but as urban areas grow throughout the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area, more people are coming into contact with these wild, powerful and sometimes unpredictable animals.
A Kangaroo Management Plan is being developed to help people and kangaroos live safely together in Coffs Harbour. The plan aims to reduce negative interactions between people and kangaroos by empowering people with the knowledge and strategies to live safely alongside kangaroos.
Several government agencies and interested individuals are collaborating to develop the plan as part of a kangaroo management steering committee including Coffs Harbour City Council, the National Parks & Wildlife Service, Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES), University of New England, residents, wildlife veterinarians and others.
The steering committee is committed to community consultation in the development of the plan. As a first step, the  University of New England has engaged an Honours student to implement a community survey through the online site Survey Monkey. The survey has been tailored to learn more about Coffs Harbour residents values, attitudes and concerns in relation to kangaroos, and to collect information about kangaroo populations and movement.
The survey is open to all members of the community; it takes just 15 minutes to complete and can be accessed from the link below.
