The panel provides advice to the Minister for Environment and Heritage or the National Parks and Wildlife Service on matters relating to the identification of the heritage value, and the management of, sustainable wild horse populations within Kosciuszko National Park.
Consistent with the Kosciuszko Wild Horse Heritage Act 2018, the panel is made up of 7 members appointed by the Minister for Environment and Heritage.
Mr John Pierce AO is Chair of the Panel. Mr Pierce is an eminent and respected former public official who has led state and federal government agencies.
Unfortunately, in the past, views and opinions on wild horse management have been expressed to previous panel members in ways that are not respectful, productive or in line with acceptable community standards. As such, details of other panel members will not be publicly disclosed.
