NSW wants to protect its feral horses. Why Victorians should be worried?
You’re invited to this free forum hosted by the Invasive Species Council in Melbourne, on Wednesday, 28 November 2018 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Kosciuszko is one of Australia’s most loved and iconic national parks. Home to Australia’s highest mountains, rugged ranges, remote wilderness and fragile alpine habitat.
And yet the NSW government earlier this year decided to turn our beloved Kosci into a free-ranging paddock for feral horses, protecting them in the park under law at the expense of Kosci’s natural heritage values.
Join Richard Swain, an Aboriginal man and one of Australia’s most experienced river guides as he takes you on a journey into Kosciuszko National Park’s past through Aboriginal and landscape interpretation. Having spent his life in the Snowy Mountains, Richard is a passionate advocate for the protection of Kosciuszko National Park.
Join him for a very personal look at the threats facing Kosci, the growing campaign to rid horses from the park led by the Invasive Species Council and what you can do to help.
Bring friends and colleagues to hear more about this important new campaign.
Please note: Light refreshments will be available before and after the talk. Invasive Species Council members are invited to attend the AGM prior to the event at 6:00pm.
You don’t need to print your ticket. Just turn up after you’ve registered. We’ll send you a reminder a few days before the event.
This event has been organised by the Invasive Species Council, with the support from the National Parks Assocation of ACT, National Parks Association of NSW, Colong Foundation for Wilderness and the Nature Conservation Council of NSW.
