A man involved in the torture and killing of kangaroos on the NSW far south coast will spend at least a year behind bars.

Ashley Sorenson was in the passenger seat of a Mazda ute when 21 eastern grey kangaroos were run over at Tura Beach in November 2019.

Sorenson, 34, on Friday received a maximum sentence of 20 months' prison at Queanbeyan Local Court.
