In 2015 several ARCOHAB members supported the tireless efforts of groups and individuals to bring an end to the senseless killing of kangaroos by the Government of the Australian Capital Territory. This page contains links to information concerning the killing and a letter condemning the killing signed by concerned scientists, educators, and other public figures and individuals working in animal protection and social justice, published in The Canberra Times on Thursday 21 May 2015.

On 14 April 2015, the Government of the Australian Capital Territory announced its plan to proceed with the killing of up to 2,466 eastern grey kangaroos in the Canberra Nature Park between 30 April and 1 August 2015.
