In the northern part Kosciuszko National Park, closer to Canberra in Australia the remains of a brumby or feral horse lies in the midst of a large burnt out area. The feral horse population has increased in size since the first colonial settlers in the 1830's allowed horses to run free in the unique and pristine mountains and is the center of fierce debate in the community as to whether the horses are part of the heritage of the area or should be culled as feral animals. With little environmental maintenance and increasingly hot summers in Australia bushfires are becoming more frequent. is The 2020 "Black Summer" bushfires that swept Australia were unprecendented in their intensity and expanse. It is estimated that over 5.6 million hectares of bushland were burnt and as many as a billion native animals were incinerated. Even in the little known, but vast and unique alpine regions of Australia the devastation was almost complete. In an area normally covered by snow for four months of the year Kosciuszko National Park was extensively damaged. In areas that normally would retain moisture all year round and at elevations of over 1200m fires ripped through vast swathes of indigenous landscapes. The ferocity of the fires caused catastrophic conditions in which little survived.
