The booming construction industry isn’t great news for everyone, 100 kangaroos have become the latest casualty in the insatiable Melbourne expansion.

The kangaroos have become trapped between their natural habitat, a rail line and new schools in the district.

The animals have been blocked from their natural habitat at Plenty Gorge Park due to construction of the new Mernda rail extension and two schools.

According to ecologist Shai Ager, the kangaroos were trapped by construction and left without access to water unless it rains.
