Protecting biodiversity and unique native species of the Australian Alps has never been so important. We support the VIC government’s action to remove feral horses and urge them to enact it as soon as possible. Backed by a body of scientific evidence, native plant and animal species directly threatened by the feral horse population in the Alpine National Park include: Alpine Tree Frogs, Alpine Water Skink, Alpine Bog Skink, Guthegas Skink, Alpine She Oak Skink. Glossy Grass Skink, Dendy’s Toadlet, Native Broad Toothed Rat, Alpine Spiny Crayfish, Barred Galaxid fish and Alpine Stone Flies as well as a myriad of Alpine plants including wildflower meadows, moss and peat lands. The removal is essential and given the added impacts of climate change and fires, must be implemented immediately.
