The Science Party does not have a formal position on the brumbies in the Kosciuszko National Park, however the Science Party has the following policies:
- Environmental protection policy, in particular the commitment to protecting our native forests
- Our strong animal welfare policy
My personal position is that there is evidence that brumbies cause some environmental harm to the national park, and as such control measures are appropriate. Doing so in a humane way should be considered. I believe that current attempts to relocate the horses to controlled farm environments are appropriate, especially where individuals may find it economically viable or personally fulfilling to do so. I am not opposed to shooting the animals, however it should be done in the most humane way possible to minimise suffering.
