Kosciuszko National Park is NSW’s biggest. It’s an area of extraordinary beauty and ecological significance, protecting rare alpine ecosystems that cover just 0.001% of the Australian continent. 

It is home to many threatened animals like the Northern Corroboree Frog, Southern Corroboree Frog, Alpine Water Skink, Alpine Spiny Crayfish, Alpine She-oak Skink and Alpine Tree Frog along with myriad native plants.

Australia’s greatest river, the Murray, rises in Kosciuszko, as do the Snowy and Murrumbidgee. Together with the Darling, the Murray and Murrumbidgee are the life blood of inland Australia. Back in 1955, Riverina farmers were horrified by the impacts heavy, hard hooved animals—cattle—were having on water catchments, and this led to the removal of grazing in 1969.

Yet apparently none of this matters in our brave new world where science and the common good are discarded for  political gain.

NPA is currently working on two Major threats to Kosciuszko. Feral horses and the Kosciuszko Wild Horse Heritage Act 2018 and Snowy 2.0
