The kangaroo population at the University of the Sunshine Coast and in the Sippy Downs area has declined rapidly since 2010.
We are calling on Members of Council and the University to urgently implement improved and more stringent management policies and procedures to reduce the number of kangaroo-vehicle collisions on Sippy Downs Drive, Claymore Road, Stringybark Road and on the USC campus roads.
In 2010, there were approximately 80 kangaroos on the USC campus but as of March 2017, there were less than 13 kangaroos left on the USC campus.
