Recently tagged as pests of the Australian Outback, kangaroos provide quite the novel eco-friendly meat protein.

As Australia continues to clear ranges and expand its farmlands, this in turn has provided more grasslands for kangaroos to feed and support larger populations called mobs.

However, the Australian rangeland supports a wide variety of animals aside from wild kangaroos. Other animals that rely on grasslands need to compete with these marsupials for food which can lead to fluctuating grazing opportunities for both free-range and domesticated sheep and cattle.

Recent efforts by the Australian government has led to the decision to keep the kangaroo population under control in order to keep rangelands sustainable for all species relying on grazing.

And yet, such efforts have also led to the discovery of kangaroo meat as a high protein novel meat that’s great for both humans and dogs alike.

A rising opportunity

Just recently, farmers have started tapping on the economic potential of kangaroo meat. Compared to sheep and cattle, kangaroos pose lesser impact on the environment and need lesser food and water to maintain compared to their ovine and bovine counterparts, making them a viable source for meat.

On the onset, harvesting wild kangaroos helps preserve the environment – making it more sustainable – while providing pets with a nutritious low-fat meat that is high in conjugated linoleic acids.

Why should pet owners be interested in conjugated linoleic acid or CLA? Well, CLA has been found to support many body functions important to overall health and fitness, especially among dogs, as well as inhibiting obesity, helping owners to manage their pet’s weight and overall cardiovascular health.
