Baldivis MLA Reece Whitby says the relocation of a mob of kangaroos from the Paramount Estate in Baldivis is proceeding as planned.
“The intention has always been to wait until cooler months later in the year when the kangaroos are less stressed to give the relocation the best chance of success,” Mr Whitby said.
“I understand the concerns of residents who are keen to see a resolution.
“The relocation operation needs careful planning to ensure it is done properly, and it should not be rushed.
“The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) is working closely to assist the developer of Paramount Estate with the relocation.
“The Premier, Environment Minister and I remain committed to seeing these kangaroos safely moved to a new home.
“The DBCA has confirmed to me that they are regularly checking on the welfare of the kangaroos to ensure their health.”
