Reforestation requires keeping the brumby horse and feral goat population carefully controlled and demands continuous intervention.
Previously wild horses were shot by helicopter and just left to die where they fall. Unfortunate goats – being of the incorrect age for use as meat – would have their back broken and left to die. We believe this is an inhumane method. We use humane trapping and mustering.
There are benefits to looking after the land for both the wildlife and us as custodians. We take eligible animals to our progressive facilities for raising and rearing. Improvement of the flora results in more bees and more honey production. More birds and wildlife creates opportunities to increase education, awareness, and eco-tourism.
We are also keen to bring Urisino back to its historical splendour through restoration of the old homestead, bore and bush spa. Ecotourism and heritage events to follow.
Another environmental project we are investigating is the viability of geothermal energy.
