Which parties will protect Kosciuszko National Park from destructive feral horses?

We’ve contacted each of the major parties to find out if they will stand up for Kosciuszko National Park by overturning the decision to protect feral horses in one of Australia’s most iconic national parks, or let feral horses continue to wreak havoc on this precious park.
