Why The Roo?
The Red Kangaroo is the world's largest marsupial. The females have one baby at a time and at birth the joey immediately moves into the pouch and stays there for 2 months. Upon coming out of the womb the joey will jump right back in whenever it feels threatened.
The males roos are known to fight for potential mates and defend their mate and joeys from potential threats, not giving any thought to their lives in order to protect the defenseless. In fact, at times, Kangaroos will join together into what is called a Mob. These groups can be made up of 10-100 kangaroos and rally around to help the ones in need. In these Mobs there are always specific Roos who are on the lookout for potential danger and alert the rest of the Mob .
Not only do Kangaroos set the example of how to live as a community, but they are, and always have been, environmentally conscious. With their large footprint and strong backlegs they move in the most energy-efficient way over long distances. They eat only vegetation, but unlike many other herbivores they do not produce methane.
So why the Kangaroo? Because they help to illustrate what we want to be: People that come together. People that look out for one another, especially the defenseless. And finally people who at the same time take care of the world we live in.
