Protecting the Snowies

The Snowy Mountains contain some of Australia’s most beautiful and unique natural landscapes, plants and animals. Each year, Kosciuszko National Park provides thousands of visitors from across Australia – and the world – with experiences that are not available anywhere else.

Maintaining the balance between protecting the park and facilitating recreation is a complex task. The park faces many threats, including pressures from introduced animals and plants that can damage the delicate alpine and sub alpine ecosystems.

Kosciuszko National Park Draft Wild Horse Management Plan: Public consultation

Have your say on the Draft Kosciuszko National Park Wild Horse Management Plan

The Kosciuszko National Park Draft Wild Horse Management Plan has been developed with input from an Independent Technical Reference Group, an extensive community and stakeholder engagement process, a review of the heritage significance of wild horses in Kosciuszko National Park (PDF 5.9MB), and a thorough review of the 2008 Kosciuszko National Park Horse Management Plan. The draft plan is now on public exhibition for comment until 19 August 2016.

Open House sessions

Drop in to one of our upcoming Informal information sessions in Queanbeyan, Jindabyne and Tumut to discuss the draft plan and wild horse management issues with local NPWS staff.
