Kosciuszko: A Great National Park

“NPA welcomes today’s release of a monumental tome on one of Australia’s natural wonders – Kosciuszko National Park” says Gary Dunnett, Executive Officer of the National Parks Association of NSW.

The new book examines the history of the Snowy Mountains and tells the story of how Kosciuszko National Park, against the odds, was established and protected for all Australians to enjoy.

NSW Government must save Kosciuszko National Park

Approval of Snowy 2.0 EIS would set appalling precedents, and all for an inferior project
 
“Despite the rapidly growing realisation that the massive Snowy 2.0 development is a deeply flawed, environmental disaster that will drive a species into extinction and offer woefully inefficient and costly energy storage, the NSW Government has signalled that it is determined to ram the project through under their short-cut approvals program to create temporary construction jobs” stated Mr Gary Dunnett, Executive Officer of the National Parks Association of NSW.
 

Approving the Snowy 2.0 EIS would have unprecedented environmental ramifications

26 Environment Organisations and Eminent Experts Urge Refusal

26 environment organisations and environmental experts have called on the NSW Minister for Planning, Hon Rob Stokes, and Minister for Energy and Environment, Hon Matt Kean, to reject the Environmental Impact Statement for the Main Works of the Snowy 2.0 pumped storage project, located in Kosciuszko National Park.

Expensive, damaging and unnecessary

Snowy 2.0 must be publicly reviewed before proceeding

30 eminent Australian energy, engineering, economic and environmental experts have called on the Prime Minister and NSW Premier to delay final approval of the Snowy 2.0 pumped storage project until there has been a comprehensive independent review. 

Snowy 2.0 to spread noxious fish and disease throughout Kosciuszko National Park and downstream rivers

Scientific experts have warned that if the massive Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro
development goes ahead it will spread noxious pests, weeds and diseases
throughout the alpine river system and downstream, causing catastrophic damage to aquatic environments, commercial fish farms and recreational fishing.
