Save the World – Eat A Kangaroo marsupial?

A marsupialAussies are being encouraged to eat greener and tuck into more of their native kangaroos marsupials to save the environment.

Greenpeace believe that if more of Australia swapped red meat for the bouncing marsupials, land clearing could be reduced and methane gas emissions could be significantly lowered.

Dr Mark Diesendorf said reducing beef consumption by 20 per cent and putting bouncing wildlife on the dinner plate instead would cut 15 megatonnes of greenhouses gases from the atmosphere by 2020.

"Kangaroos do not emit greenhouse gases. They are not hooved animals either so they don't damage the soil," Dr Diesendorf said.
