The NSW Government has approved new legislation to recognise and protect the heritage value and cultural significance of the Snowy Mountains Brumby, bringing an end to years of speculation about the culling of the animals.

Deputy Premier and Member for Monaro, John Barilaro, says the new laws will specifically prohibit lethal culling of the Brumby.

They will also require the Minister for Environment to prepare a heritage management plan for the brumby, which will identify areas within the Kosciuszko National Park where Brumbies can roam, without causing significant environmental harm.
