  1. Making kangaroos grievable; making grievability non-human

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Wijnandts, Y. K. C.

    When Australian economist Ross Garnaut proposed to increase the commercial kangaroo industry in 2008, it started a national debate on the supposed edibility of kangaroos. Campaigns against the commercial kangaroo industry and hesitance amongst many consumers to eat kangaroo reflect concerns about...

  2. Kangaroos display gazing and gaze alternations during an unsolvable problem task

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: McElligott, A. G., O'Keeffe, K. H., Green, A. C.

    Domestication is generally assumed to have resulted in enhanced communication abilities between non-primate mammals and humans, although the number of species studied is very limited (e.g. cats, Felis catus; dogs, Canis familiaris; wolves, Canis lupus; goats, Capra hircus; horses, Equus...

  3. Taste overshadows less salient cues to elicit food aversion in endangered marsupial

    | Contributor(s):: Kelly, Ella, Phillips, Ben L., Webb, Jonathan K.

    Conditioned taste aversion is an emerging conservation tool that can be used to limit inter-species conflict, for example decreasing predation on endangered species, or limiting the consumption of invasive toxic prey. Typically, managers wish to elicit an aversion that will be associated with...

  4. Bulldozers and blueberries: managing fence damage by bare-nosed wombats at the agricultural-riparian interface

    | Contributor(s):: Borchard, P., Wright, I. A.

  5. Important cows and possum pests: New Zealand's Biodiversity Strategy and (bio)political taxonomies of introduced species

    | Contributor(s):: Dutkiewicz, J.

    This paper examines how New Zealand's conservation discourses and strategies have, since the launch of its Biodiversity Strategy at the turn of the millennium, created and sustained a local taxonomy of species rooted in the overlapping but often clashing logics of biodiversity protection,...

  6. Assessing acute effects of trapping, handling, and tagging on the behavior of wildlife using GPS telemetry: a case study of the common brushtail possum

    | Contributor(s):: Dennis, T. E., Shah, S. F.

    Trapping, handling, and deployment of tracking devices (tagging) are essential aspects of many research and conservation studies of wildlife. However, often these activities place nonhuman animals under considerable physical or psychological distress, which disrupts normal patterns of behavior...

  7. Sedation of western grey kangaroos ( Macropus fuliginosus ocydromus) with tiletamine-zolazepam

    | Contributor(s):: Mayberry, C., Bencini, R., Mawson, P. R., Maloney, S. K.

    It is sometimes necessary to restrain kangaroos ( Macropus spp) for veterinary treatment or in the course of scientific research, but the associated stresses may induce capture myopathy in wild kangaroos. Judicious use of injectable sedatives can reduce the risk of capture myopathy. Zoletil, a...

  8. The welfare ethics of the commercial killing of free-ranging kangaroos: an evaluation of the benefits and costs of the industry

    | Contributor(s):: Ben-Ami, D., Boom, K., Boronyak, L., Townend, C., Ramp, D., Croft, D. B., Bekoff, M.

    The commercial killing of kangaroos provides multiple benefits to society, but also causes both deliberate and unintended harms to kangaroos. The ethics of the kangaroo industry is assessed in terms of whether the assumed benefits justify the welfare costs. An analysis of the stated benefits...

  9. A report of capture myopathy in the Tasmanian pademelon ( Thylogale billardierii)

    | Contributor(s):: McMahon, C. R., Wiggins, N. L., French, V., McCallum, H. I., Bowman, D.

  10. Short-term welfare implications of capture-mark-recapture trapping of medium-sized mammals: the brushtail possum ( Trichosurus vulpecula) as a case study

    | Contributor(s):: Cowan, P., Forrester, G., Warburton, B.

  11. Habitat associations of the long-nosed potoroo (potoroos tridactylus) at multiple spatial scales

    | Contributor(s):: Melinda A. Norton

    The long-nosed potoroo (Potorous tridactylus) is a threatened, ground-dwelling marsupial known to have been highly disadvantaged by changes brought about since European settlement in Australia. Key threats to the species are believed to be fox predation and habitat loss and/or fragmentation. In...

  12. Evaluation of Zoletil and other injectable anaesthetics for field sedation of brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula)

    | Contributor(s):: Morgan, D. R., Scobie, S., Arthur, D. G.

  13. Minimising number killed in long-term vertebrate pest management programmes, and associated economic incentives

    | Contributor(s):: Warburton, B., Tompkins, D. M., Choquenot, D., Cowan, P.

  14. The welfare of an unwanted guest in an urban environment: the case of the white-eared opossum (Didelphis albiventris)

    | Contributor(s):: Souza, C. S. A., Teixeira, C. P., Young, R. J.

  15. Why own an exotic pet?

    | Contributor(s):: Moutou, F., Pastoret, P. P.

  16. Paper tiger : a visual history of the thylacine

    | Contributor(s):: Freeman, Carol

  17. Imaging extinction: Disclosure and revision in photographs of the thylacine (Tasmanian tiger)

    | Contributor(s):: Freeman, C.

  18. Negotiating Nostalgia: The Rhetoricity of Thylacine Representation in Tasmanian Tourism

    | Contributor(s):: Turner, S. S.

  19. Chronic toxicity of 1080 and its implications for conservation management: a New Zealand case study

    | Contributor(s):: Weaver, S. A.

    Sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) is a mammalian pesticide used in different parts of the world for the control of mammalian pest species. In New Zealand it is used extensively and very successfully as a conservation management tool for the control of brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) - an...

  20. Minimizing harm in possum control operations and experiments in New Zealand

    | Contributor(s):: Morris, M. C., Weaver, S. A.

    Pest control operations and experimentation on sentient animals such as the brushtail possum can cause unnecessary and avoidable suffering in the animal subjects. Minimizing animal suffering is an animal welfare goal and can be used as a guide in the design and execution of animal experimentation...
