Protecting Wilderness and National Parks

Protect Kosciuszko National Park from feral horse degradation

Please support the NPWS Kosciuszko National Park Draft Wild Horse Management Plan 2016 by writing a submission using the guide below. Once adopted, the plan will enable the NPWS to protect the park's heritage and natural values from increased evironmental degradation by greatly reducing feral horse numbers.

Unless this plan to humanely eliminate many more feral horses is implemented, environmental degradation (and horse suffering) must increase.

Adapt the guide letter below to make a submission in your own words. By making a submission you will help secure better feral horse management for Koscisuzko National Park. 

Submission period now extended to 5pm, 19 August.

For more explanation of the reasoning behind this response to the plan, please go to Colong's submission on the management plan and also Colong’s feral horse management policy

Some possible additional points for you could use in the comments section below:

Aerial shooting by marksmen in helicopters is the most humane and effective means of controlling feral horses. It is far superior than any other method. The next best option is shooting from the ground, an option deployed after most feral horses in an area have been removed by aerial shooting.

Feral animals should not be given national heritage status and is not acceptable to those who want to protect our fragile natural areas.
