Guest Speaker:

Sharon Terry spoke on the Management of Feral horses in the Barmah National Park. Sharon has for almost a decade represented GVEG on various government committees addressing this issue spoke on the ongoing damage to the sensitive wetlands with-in the Park and the challenges convincing government to act. GVEG are expecting a decision from Minister D’Ambrosio to be made shortly, but as time elapses so does our confidence in the Victorian government willingness to address the issue.
