For more information on why we need to put science and an understanding of environmental impacts back into the management of Kosciuszko,  here are three key sources for more information:

1. The NSW Threatened Species Scientific Committee, established under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 (the Act), has made a Final Determination to list habitat degradation and loss by Feral Horses (brumbies, wild horses), Equus caballus Linnaeus 1758, as a Key Threatening Process in Schedule 4 of the Act. 

This is in stark contrast to the status given to feral horses in the Kosciuszko Wild Horse Heritage Act 2018,

2. Abstracts from a Science Conference in November 2018 

Feral Horse Impacts: The Kosciuszko Science Conference Abstracts in November 2018 are freely available online:

Observations from space, Drone technology, and up close observations and much more.

3.  
Peer-reviewed papers about Feral Horses in the Australian Alps 

These papers were published in the Ecological Management & Restoration Journal in January 2019.  It’s open access and includes full papers expanding on some of those presented at the science conference, additional papers, editorials and the NSW final determination that feral horses are a threatening process.
