Using investigative techniques such as interviews, citizen footage, and research, Kangaroo: A Love-Hate Story shows how the kangaroo meat industry and the Australian government put profits ahead of animal welfare, native species protection and the environment. In addition, farmers who are guided by misinformation and profit take whatever steps they deem necessary to eradicate the species.
As a curriculum resource, Kangaroo: A Love-Hate Story encourages students to think about complex topics such as national mythology and iconography, persistent colonial ideologies, animal welfare, sustainability, urbanisation and land development, the cost of capitalism and the pursuit of profit, ethics and fairness, the political process, the power of consumer choice, and people power in general.
