Burke vetoes Victoria's alpine grazing trial
Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke today formally refused EPBC approval for cattle grazing in Victoria's alpine national parks and reserves, on the basis that it would have "unacceptable impacts".

The Victorian Government last December sought EPBC Act approval for a trial involving grazing by up to 400 cattle for up to five months a year, after the Federal Government gazetted regulations requiring EPBC referral of the proposal (see related article).

"The assessment has shown there is irrefutable evidence that cattle grazing would damage the sensitive natural environment, disturb the remote and wild character of the area, detract from aesthetic values, and erode its heritage values," Burke said.
