Species at risk
Kosciuszko’s most vulnerable native plants and animals under threat
Feral horses are recognised in NSW as a key threat to native wildlife. In late November 2018 the NSW Scientific Committee listed ‘Degradation and loss by Feral Horses (brumbies, wild horses), Equus caballus’ as a key threatening process under the NSW Biodiversity Conservation Act.
The committee found that feral horses adversely affect threatened species or ecological communities, and that they could cause species or ecological communities that are not threatened to become threatened.
Kosciuszko National Park is home to many threatened native species likely to suffer from feral horse disturbance. At risk are:
- 23 threatened native plant species.
- 11 native animal species.
- 5 ecological communities.
