'Wilful disregard': Scientist quits NSW panel over wild horses bill

    Description

    Fallout from the Berejiklian government's plan to protect wild horses in NSW's largest national park has begun, with a leading ecologist quitting a key panel citing a "wilful disregard" for science.

    David Watson, an ecology professor at Charles Sturt University, resigned his membership on the NSW Threatened Species Scientific Committee following the passage late on Wednesday of a bill granting "heritage" status to feral horses in the Kosciuszko National Park.
