The ABC has a story on research out of the ACT Department of Territory and Municipal Services.
They’ve been GPS collaring kangaroos to study their behaviour.

- So far the research has revealed male kangaroos stay in an area of about three-square kilometres, while female kangaroos remain in an area of about half a square kilometre.
Senior ecologist Don Fletcher says some of the data will be used to help reduce the number of wildlife road accidents around Canberra.
