Anne Dickson

A strong turnout of residents demonstrated the community interest in what has recently been dubbed by the ABC as a “controversial” new law to protect wild horses in Kosciuszko National Park and the chance to hear Anne Dickson, President of the National Parks Association NSW, speak on this at “Glebe Voices” on 31 July.

Anne was in conversation with the Glebe Society’s environment convenor, Åsa Wahlquist.

Anne described some of the implications of the new protections, as well as the concerns voiced by many scientists about this.

As well as compering the event, Allan Hogan also ran a slide show. This featured alpine plants photographed by Charlotte Simpson-Young. Judy Vergison distributed prizes featuring of some of the native animals found in the park.
