Conservation cull update

Released 14/05/2014

Following an application from Animal Liberation ACT, a hearing was held this afternoon at the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal (ACAT) in relation to the Conservator of Flora and Fauna's decision to issue licences to Territory and Municipal Services for the purposes of undertaking a conservation cull of 1606 eastern grey kangaroos at eight sites.

ACAT ordered that the Territory not enforce the licence issued by the Conservator of Flora and Fauna to undertake the conservation cull until 9 am on Wednesday 21 May 2014. The Tribunal will reconvene on Tuesday 20 May 2014 to consider whether to issue a subsequent order.

The eight grassland and woodland sites previously closed for the program will reopen and remain open until further notice.

"At this stage this is not an injunction stopping the cull, it is simply a procedural process to give both parties the time to submit additional supporting evidence for the hearing to be held on Tuesday 20 May," said Daniel Iglesias, Director, ACT Parks and Conservation.
