The Nature Conservation Council welcomes the finalisation of the Kosciuszko National Park Wild Horse Heritage Management Plan, which aims to reduce feral horse numbers by up to 80 per cent. 
“Horses in Kosciuszko National Park have been doing untold damage to iconic landscapes for decades," Chief Executive Chris Gambian said.
“It is good to have a serious plan to address feral horses finally in place.
“The challenge for the government and the National Parks and Wildlife Service now is to ensure the plan is implemented quickly and efficiently, with the resources needed to get the job done.
“Every horse in the park is doing damage. Leaving 3,000 roaming this sensitive wilderness leaves a massive risk to endangered species.
“But any action is better than the gross inaction we have seen for too long now.”
