Murray Valley Bushwalkers

The Murray Valley Bushwalkers support the Reclaim Kosci campaign because feral animals (including horses) are degrading, compromising and threatening the Kosciuszko National Park’s ecosystems and wilderness values. They want Kosciuszko to be loved and enjoyed by future generations. It is simply not sustainable to allow uncontrolled numbers of brumbies in the park.

Monaro Acclimatisation Society

The Monaro Acclimitisation Society joins with the Invasive Species Council in the quest to reduce the numbers of feral horses doing irreparable damage to the natural environment of Kosciuszko National park (KNP).

The MAS has worked co-operatively with the Kosciuszko National Park on angler access issues and we believe that the numbers of feral horses within the park need to be reduced. The number of feral horses that need to be removed is relative to the amount of damage that is presently occurring to our alpine rivers, streams, wetlands, sphagnum bogs and other threatened and fragile ecosystems within the park.

Groups of OFF members have stayed in Kosciuszko NP (Smiggin Holes, Charlotte Pass) in summer for many years; some members have also skied there.

We value the endemic fauna and flora very highly and believe feral horses have a serious deleterious effect on the integrity of the landscape and its biodiversity.

Platypus Conservation Initiative

Platypus populations are dependent on rivers and streams for feeding, nesting, and breeding. In Kosciuszko National Park wild horses are trampling river banks, removing riparian vegetation, and increasing sedimentation, likely impacting platypus burrows and their macroinvertebrate prey.

Practical Ecology

Our company and staff support Reclaim Kosci because we understand the immense impacts of invasive species on native species and habitats in general and alpine environments in particular. We have just completed our 14th year helping Parks Victoria in managing the state prohibited weed Hawkweed on the Bogong High Plains and know how fragile alpine environments from our own professional experience. The science is clear that feral horses have enormous negative impacts on indigenous flora and fauna and the critically important water sources that feed the most important rivers of Australia.

Ochre Lawson Art

As an artist who paints wilderness landscapes and as a consequence researches into every environment I travel through and paint, the protection of these rare and unique places are extremely important for the survival of both animals and the human race.

They are not only places of extreme beauty but places that sustain our water sources, soil viability and air quality. All living beings are symbiotic for survival.

Kosciuszko National park is a very small island compared to private land available for horses, grazing, clearing and so forth. It is imperative its diversity be protected.

The scientific evidence has been ignored. Horses are doing terrible damage to the alpine environment of Kosci so their numbers must be reduced urgently.
