What legacy do you think we should leave for future generations?
We were recently approached by a student from Jindabyne Central School about her intention to do her forthcoming speech for the 2014 Rostrum public speaking competition on the issue of wild horse management in Kosciuszko National Park. As Molly states in her speech, it is a topic generating significant interest in her local area.
THIS FORUM OPENED ON 22 OCTOBER AND CLOSED ON 7 NOVEMBER
She was encouraged by NPWS staff to seek all sides of the story and was assisted with contacts for a range of people, including brumby advocate groups, to seek opinions and viewpoints. Molly delves into some of the opposing views of the issue and leaves us with the question of what legacy we, every one of us, will leave for future generations as a result of our attitudes towards wild horse management.
As required by Rostrum, Molly wrote the speech herself using the material she had collected. It was posted on Youtube and the Rostrum website.
NPWS sought permission from the student and her parents to use it as it provides yet another perspective on the issue, this time from a 12 year old resident of the district.
