There have been few evaluations of macropod translocation programs and those that have been undertaken have invariably reported only on their usefulness from 'conservation' perspectives (i.e. in order to facilitate in-situ breeding programs for threatened species or reintroductions to species-depleted areas. The IUCN (1995) guidelines for reintroductions are only for conservation purposes. National Parks and Wildlife Services similarly only consider translocation from a reintroduction and conservation perspective. No evaluations have considered the welfare benefits for wildlife and kangaroos in particular, where the species have been decreed to be relatively more regionally 'abundant' but has become isolated through human interventions.
