Parra Waripa — Red Kangaroo Song

PARRA WARIPA - Red Kangaroo Song

We are thrilled at the success of this song. We couldn’t be happier with our collaboration with David Bridie (seven-time ARIA award-winning songwriter and composer) and Jida Gulpilil proud multi-clan man from Dja Dja Wurrung and Wamba Wamba. PARRA WARIPA is the title track to KANGAROO A Love-Hate Story.

“All over the world audiences are stunned by the beauty of the music and Wemba Wemba language.”
— Kate McIntyre Clere. Co-director of KANGAROO.


Composed by David Bridie, Performed by Jida Gulpilil.

PARRA WARIPA (Red Kangaroo) is sung in the Wemba Wemba language, spoken by the Wamba Wamba and Perrepa Perrepa people from the Riverina Region of New South Wales. We are honoured that Parra Waripa has reached #1 on the AMRAP (Australian Music Radio Airplay Project) charts this NAIDOC week.

If you haven’t listened, danced to and shared the song, you better get to it.

Europe is rejecting kangaroo meat, skins


An update from film-maker Mick McIntyre

IN THE MIDST of the tragedy unfolding around us I wanted to send some good news.

As you know when we toured Europe with (the movie) KANGAROO a Love Hate story we engaged some fantastic NGO’s to work on a kangaroo campaign.

Well the resulting campaigns in Europe are running fast. Here are some recent victories.


— The campaign is run by Gaia.be

All nine major supermarkets in Belgium have now STOPPED SELLING kangaroo meat. Lidl, Aldi, Colruyt, Delhaize, Carrefour, Makro, Spar, Cora, Match

Plus there is currently work going on in the Belgian parliament.


— The campaign is run by LAV.IT

  • Fashion brands DIADORA has just stopped using kangaroo skins.
  • Fashion brand VERSACE has just stopped using kangaroo skins.
  • (GUCCI stopped using kangaroo skins over 12 months ago).

The campaign is now focusing on other big brands such as LOTTO.

Plus there is currently work going on in the Italian parliament.


— The campaign is being run by The Bridget Bardot Foundation

Bridget Bardot has written an open letter condemning the kangaroo killing.


— The campaign is b being run by Pro Wildlife and Tierschutzakademie.

More news on Germany to follow.

EU in Brussels

— The campaign is being coordinated by the EUROGROUP FOR ANIMALS.

More news on the EU campaign soon.

As you can imagine these victories are big steps into stopping the trade of all kangaroo products into Europe.

A huge thanks to Dror Ben Ami for all his work on this Europe campaign — and everyone else involved.

We have been making videos for the Europe campaign (big thanks to Greg and Dianne).
