The roo makes its way up and down the fence line, but can’t see a way through.

The man who filmed the video said new construction in the area had started to take a toll on wildlife.

‘Recently developers started clearing the dunes in Golden Bay where I live and our community has been protesting at the site each day to save the dunes and the fauna and wildlife,’ the filmer wrote.

‘The developers have told us all that they have considered the wildlife in their plans.’

I took this video around the corner from my house which clearly shows the kangaroo cannot get back to the dunes because of the development and fences.’
