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.

  1. poor roos they were here first the coast is getting way too developed and crowded more consideration is needed for wildlife its not all about making money

  2. I am sending all my support to USC Eco and its campaign from Brazil. Success on protecting the kangaroo population at the USC and in Sippy Downs!

  3. Very interesting article in Buderim Chronicle and research paper by Beth Brunton. I am a member of Freinds of the Maroochy Botanic Gardens and we are looking at establishing an eco sanctuary over 200 hectare area. This will be part of our master plan review of the Gardens. I would be most interested in info about having a mob of eastern greys in our lawn/ grassland/ melaleuca areas.
