The Reclaim Kosci campaign

Are you passionate about conservation and protecting our natural environment? Do you have strong experience in delivering high profile campaigns and political lobbying?

The fragile sub-alpine and alpine environment of Kosciuszko National Park is under threat from the hard hooves of thousands of horses. NSW is the only state that has legislated the protection of an introduced species in a national park, despite the mountain of scientific evidence that documents the destruction caused by feral horses to riparian zones, streams, native vegetation and wildlife habitats. We invite you to join a dynamic team that is determined to see the government implement a plan that effectively and humanely manages feral horses in Kosciuszko national park.

About the roles

The two campaigners will work together with other campaign team members to coordinate, lead and deliver the Reclaim Kosci campaign.

The roles will have a strong focus on lobbying, stakeholder engagement and media activities. The campaigners will inspire, engage and mobilise new audiences and existing supporters to make progress on addressing the impacts of feral horses in Kosciuszko National Park. The core focus of each campaigner will be negotiated dependent on the strengths demonstrated by the candidate.

The campaigners will work closely with other campaign staff. Direction will be provided by the Reclaim Kosci campaign steering committee.
