Kangaroos Struggle to Survive Drought, Cars Don't Make It Easier
Ever since New South Wales officially declared that NSW is 100 percent in drought on Aug. 8, kangaroos have reportedly been hit by cars.
Damion Stirling, Wollondilly Council’s environmental education officer, said that there is an increase in road kills in the northwest of Wollongong, MacArthur Advertiser reported.
Stirling stated that the droughts could be causing the wildlife to search for food and water, another explanation given could be the development of new land.
The increase in dead animals found on the road is attributed to them seeking food closer to the road.
