Commonwealth to act on alpine grazing

Federal Minister Tony Burke has determined that reintroduction of grazing is a controlled action and must be referred to him:

“Until I have made a decision on the referral, the cattle grazing actions must stop and cattle will need to be removed from the Alpine National Park.

“Cattle grazing in the Alpine National Park is setting a dangerous precedent for the management of national parks across Australia. Victoria can’t expect us to wait around while cattle are stomping over endangered wetlands.”
