Urgent call to fence off Kosciuszko creek to save endangered fish

Description

The remaining habitat of a critically endangered freshwater fish in the Kosciuszko National Park needs to be fenced off urgently to protect it from feral horses, scientists and campaigners say.

The National Parks and Wildlife Services said it has been discussing with the University of Canberra ways the fish and its environment can be protected. "Fencing may be one option," a spokesman said.
