Entry Description

Kangaroos at dusk in outback QLD, Australia finding safety in the long, old growth grass. Kangaroos may be large in numbers, but here cattle station farming reigns and kangaroos are viewed as a pest by many. They are shot and trapped by fencing. Here however, they have refuge on this conservation property.
