Every year Australian children are being traumatised by the sight of the Snowy Mountains Alpine roads littered with the bloodied, dead and mangled bodies of wildlife that is part of the annual winter roadkill carnage. Created by the overwhelming amount of holidaymakers traffic flocking to the snowfields, thousands of kangaroos, wallabies and wombats are left dying and dead on the roadside between Canberra, Perisher and Thredbo. 

Particularly poignant are the number of dead animals inside the Kosciuszko National Park, a place that has been legally set aside to protect Australian fauna and flora.

Not only is the amount of winter traffic growing exponentially every year, with an already stressed environment due to drought and human intervention Kosciuszko National Park is currently obviously unable to deal with the numbers of visitors driving to the snow resorts of Perisher and Thredbo. This year, 2019, saw the unprecedented road closures of both Kosciuszko Road and The Alpine Way just outside of Jindabyne.

We are petitioning the Deputy Premier the Hon John Barilaro (MP) to enact legislation to create a reasonable transport solution in the Snowy Mountains region that will enable visitors to have an affordable and safe alternative to driving their cars into a precious, unique but often dangerous environment thus saving the lives of rare (and now often endangered) Australian wildlife and encouraging sensible and eco-friendly tourism.
