Where do we source our Kangaroo from?
Did you know Kangaroos outnumber the Australian human population 2 to 1? Their population is at its highest on record. The problem with this is that they are eating large amounts of vegetation needed for other animals. Since there are no Kangaroo farms in Australia all Kangaroos are considered to be free and in the wild, so the government has created culling programs to control numbers.
We buy our Kangaroo skins from local farmers, who have government permits to cull kangaroos on their land. This way Australian farmers make a profit from culling a pest and Ugg Australia is making use of something that would otherwise be discarded. Buying Kangaroo is not only good for the environment but it is also sustainable, keeping money within Australia and local businesses.
