Formed in 2008 by a number of wild horse rescue organisations throughout Australia, the Australian Brumby Alliance (ABA) is concerned with the promotion, protection and humane management of Australian Wild Brumby horses. The objectives of the Association include :
- Furthering the welfare and wellbeing of Australian Brumbies;
- Promoting Brumby heritage values to governments, their agents and the community;
- Advocating for non-lethal humane methods of controlling excess Brumby numbers where ever there are reasonable alternatives to pursue;
- Lobbying State and Federal governments for secure long-term land allocations for Brumbies to continue living and evolving in their wild state;
- Facilitating information exchange, networking and support for member group activities;
- Raising funds on a national scale to support Australian Brumby welfare and heritage.
- Seeking legislative changes to protect Australian Wild Horses.
Member groups include some of the biggest state wild horse rescue charities and associations in Australia. Support group members include a number of other equine welfare organisations.
Where possible, we aim to work with governments and other organisations such as the RSPCA and Animals Australia to achieve our goals.
ABA is a registered animal welfare charity that is run by a Management Committee with representatives from each our our member groups. We are funded by membership fees and public donations.
