The Snowy Mountains Brumby Sustainability and Management Group have conducted a second aerial population count of the brumby mobs, North of Kosciuszko National Park.

Last month the group called for donations from supporters to conduct a second count. They raised $2,300.

79 sightings of horses were made with a total of 367 horses recorded across the Long Plain landscape.

This compares with 688 horses recorded as part of the initial population survey.

National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Minister of Environments Office reject the numbers counted by the group and will not consider them as part of any submission because no independent witnesses were on the flight.
