Greens to Environment Minister: introduced species don’t need heritage protection

Media Release
Andrew Bartlett 4 Jun 2018

The Environment Minister’s support for the NSW government’s move to use heritage laws to protect horses in the Kosciuszko National Park is farcical says Greens spokesperson for the Environment, Senator Andrew Bartlett.

“An Environment Minister who was committed to discharging his duties instead of backing up his mates in NSW would make the tough decision and protect vulnerable ecosystems and threatened species against major damage being caused by introduced animals. 

“The federal Greens support the position taken by our colleagues in the NSW Parliament to oppose the proposed legislation the state government is putting forward.”
