As residents or visitors to Anglesea, we are very fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful bushland with abundant native wildlife. Anglesea is famous for its kangaroos which can be observed grazing peacefully on the Anglesea Golf Course.
Unfortunately, our kangaroos and joeys can be killed by cars and dogs particularly in the vicinity of the golf course and Great Ocean Road.
On the road, speed is the major cause for concern. High speed means there is not enough time to slow or brake for a kangaroo crossing ahead.
Dogs of all sizes can panic kangaroos, causing them to bolt across roads and toss out pouch young. Unattended dogs have also been responsible for mauling kangaroos.
You can help protect our kangaroos by:
