Brumbies in Kosciusko National Park

The NSW Government has protected brumbies in the Kosciusko National Park. Brumbies numbers are already too high. The proposed management dangerously reckless policy that will escalate environmental impacts, increase costs of feral horse management, and put horses at risk of extreme suffering, according to members of the Ecological Society of Australia. Sign the NCC urgent petition to Premier Berejiklian calling on her to protect the iconic Snowy Mountains. 

I had the privilege of being in Ecuador recently. We visited Cotopaxi National Park. I was concerned to see large numbers of feral horses at altitude, in very poor condition and doing similar sort of damage to that from our feral horses. See picture above Our guide told us this it was difficult for the Park Service to do anything about it because the horses were seen to be part of the culture.
