Donate for Kosci

Support the campaign to Reclaim Kosci

The Reclaim Kosci campaign has been created to overturn the NSW Government decision to protect destructive feral horses at the expense of Kosciuszko National Park’s incredible natural values and threatened species.

In the wrong place feral horses are highly destructive animals. They destroy alpine habitat, stomp fragile waterways and threaten native wildlife. They belong in a paddock, not our park.

Scientific advice says we must urgently reduce the number of feral horses in Kosciuszko National Park or risk the future of 31 plant and animal species, including the iconic corroborree frog.

Reclaim Kosci is supported by national and state environmental organisations including the Invasive Species Council, Colong Foundation for Wilderness, National Parks Association of NSW, Nature Conservation Council of NSW and the National Parks Association of the ACT.

We are calling on the NSW Government to repeal the Kosciuszko Wild Horse Heritage Act 2018 and to put in place humane and effective feral horse control methods.

Please support our campaign by making a tax-deductible donation today. Donations go to the Invasive Species Council, which is leading the Reclaim Kosci campaign.

We would like to acknowledge the kind donations made in honour of the recent passing of Dr Graeme Worboys AM. Graeme was a champion of the mountains and protected areas and we are grateful for his leadership and support.

Donations are tax-deductible for Australian taxpayers. The Invasive Species Council is an Australian registered charity.
