Australia | To protect burned-over areas, 4,000 feral horses to be removed from Koscuiszko NP

About 4,000 feral horses will be removed from Kosciuszko national park in New South Wales as part of an emergency response to protect the alpine ecosystem after large areas were devastated by bushfires.


The move would be the largest removal of horses in the park’s history, said the NSW environment minister, Matt Kean.
