Polar Expedition to raise awareness and funds for Kangaroos

Ks4Kangas master ADAA banner 

Charity Director, Marcus Fillinger, will embark on a world first two-part ice dive expedition series of the world’s water-based poles; the Geographic North Pole in April 2015, and the Magnetic North Pole in March 2016.

Marcus will run the 42.2km North Pole Marathon, viewed as one of the toughest marathons in the world, before setting out on his polar dive in April 2015. His aim? To raise much needed funds for research into ethical kangaroo fertility control that will provide a sustainable, non-lethal alternative to cruel culling.

Accompanied by two of his husky friends during the marathon and subsequent polar dive, Marcus hopes people around the world will support Ks for Kangaroos.

Alphadog AnimalArmy is leading the way in research and development of dart efficiency for the remote delivery of fertility control vaccines for native wildlife. All funds raised will support the charity’s important animal rescue work and the continued research and development of non-lethal wildlife solutions.
