The ABA has responded to the Victorian “Greater Alpine National Parks draft management plan” released June 2014. In summary, the ABA has called for:
“The Brumby’s unique, living cultural must be recognised as it is totally consistent with the Act obligations to respect culture), by:
- Formalising conservation grazing programs,
- Maintaining viable, co-existing Brumby populations, and
- Removing overabundant Brumby numbers by humane methods such as passive trapping, low stress mustering and fertility control [effective now for populations < 200].
- Never use aerial shooting in the Alpine National Park. “
