The Kangaroo Management Reference Group (KMRG) provides advice to DEW on implementing the South Australian Commercial Kangaroo Management Plan 2018 – 2022. The KMRG advises on quota setting, regulation and compliance, policy and the role of kangaroo harvesting when managing total grazing pressure.
The KMRG has members from the kangaroo industry, pastoralism, primary production, Aboriginal, animal welfare and conservation organisations, and relevant government departments. All members of the Group have knowledge of, or experience in, managing commercially harvested kangaroo species. Scientific support is provided by DEW staff.
KMRG meetings are held twice a year, more frequently if a special need arises.
