International Kangaroo Day is celebrated on October 24. This day celebrates, honors and recognizes kangaroos and their importance to Australia. This anniversary has been launched by the Australian non-profit organization Kangaroos Alive , which gathers support from around the world to end the industrial killing of kangaroos.
Although kangaroos and wallabies are national symbols of Australia, almost 90 million of them have been poached for their skins or meat in the last 30 years. All kangaroos hunted have been wild animals, not farmed for their meat, and currently the European Union is Australia's main export partner for kangaroo products. Kangaroo hunting gives rise to serious concerns about animal welfare, nature conservation, food safety and hygiene. Read more: Känguru – ainulaadne kukkurloom, keda tuleb kaitsta! (in Estonian)
In connection with the World Kangaroo Day, the NGO Loomus shows the Australian documentary "Kangaroo: A Love-Hate Story" in Tallinn, Tartu and Viljandi. This groundbreaking film reveals the truth surrounding Australia’s love-hate relationship with its beloved icon. The kangaroo image is proudly used by top companies, sports teams and as tourist souvenirs, yet when they hop across the vast continent some consider them to be pests to be shot and sold for profit. Kangaroo unpacks a national paradigm where the relationship with kangaroos is examined.
The film lasts 103 min and is in English with English subtitles. The film is free for everyone.
The film will be shown:
