IKPA is comprised of international experts with a wide range of knowledge and credentials. Through this expertise, IKPA fosters research collaborations that create new knowledge and provide open access to data on the biology, ecology, and cultural dimensions of kangaroos.

Our goal is to provide credible and reliable information to drive key IKPA strategies for protecting kangaroos, foster stronger bonds between humans and kangaroos, and promote positive mechanisms for change.
