Protecting the Snowies
Managing wild horses has been a long running contentious issue. The growing population of wild horses in the Snowy Mountains poses a significant threat to the flora and fauna of this unique Australian landscape.
In 2014 an innovative online community consultation campaign was implemented to stimulate balanced conversation, raise awareness and appreciation of the management challenges, educate a community about the challenges and threats and seek input to shape the plan through credible engaging content.
