Protecting Wilderness and National Parks

Kosciuszko

Kosciuszko, our largest national park, is already developed enough

NSW Government plan[1] to spend $27 million to build 46km of new cycling and walking paths through the fragile alpine ecosystems in the iconic Kosciuszko National Park should not proceed.  No detailed an environmental impact assessment and public review is planned for these projects.

Snowy 2.0 - overpriced and damaging to Kosciuszko NP

“The feasibility study for the Snowy 2 pumped-hydro scheme reveals cost an estimated cost of $3.8 to $4.5 billion*, and that’s without the cost of the required major electricity transmission network upgrade.  The real cost is likely to be double this feasibility estimate, to which you then must add the signifcant harm that will be done to Kosciuszko National Park.  This very expensive,  national park damaging proposal should not proceed,” said Keith Muir director of the Colong Foundation for Wilderness.
