KOSCIUSZKO: IT’S A PARK NOT A PADDOCK!

Our beautiful Kosciuszko National Park continues to be trampled by thousands of hooves with promises of a new management plan unmet. Ask Minister Kean to announce a timeline for the public exhibition of the new draft Kosciuszko horse management plan!

Reclaim Kosci

For years masses of hard-hooved feral horses have been allowed to jeopardise Kosci’s incredible natural values and threatened species.  

As you know, we are still operating under the 2008 horse management plan when there were estimated to only be a few thousand feral horses in the park – and even that was far too many!

Join us and use your voice to ask Environment Minister Matt Kean to commit to a deadline for releasing the new draft Kosciuszko horse management plan.

Congratulations to the winner of the Reclaim Kosci video competition Brett Frawley with ‘That Warm Fuzzy Feeling’.

Brett’s piece achieved a very rare thing – he used just the right proportions of humour and honesty to offer up a very clear message about the need to protect Kosciuszko National Park from feral horses. If only Australia’s politicians could learn from his example!

He was brave to use such arresting images of horses – in all their majesty – en route to convincing his audience that Kosciuszko National Park is no place for hard-hoofed mammals.

Lovely, original work, voiced by a corroboree frog no less!
