Member for Monaro John Barilaro this week announced the next step to address the number of brumbies in Kosciuszko National Park, with the appointment of the Kosciuszko Wild Horse Community Advisory Panel (CAP) and the Scientific Advisory Panel.
“I’ve long been advocating to find a balance between recognising the heritage and cultural significance of the brumbies, while enabling active management to reduce their impact on the National Park’s alpine environment.
“The appointment of the Kosciuszko Wild Horse Community Advisory Panel means we can get on with the job,” Mr Barilaro said.
Tim Johnson has been appointed Chair of the CAP, with NSW Chief Scientist, Professor Hugh Durrant-Whyte, to take on the role of Deputy Chair.
