Australia | Feral horse number exploding in Kosciuszko NP, elsewhere in Australian Alps

Feral horse numbers have more than doubled in the past five years in the Australian Alps, according to results just released from the Australian Alps Feral Horse Aerial Survey. In one of the three survey blocks, North Kosciuszko, feral horse numbers have risen from an estimated 3,255 in 2014 to 15,687 in 2019, a near five-fold increase.


Scientists warned the government that very high numbers of horses would be the inevitable consequence of its inaction over horse management.
