A STAND-OFF is developing
between the Victorian and
federal governments over the
re-introduction of grazing to the
Alpine National Park.
The Victorian Coalition last
week rejected a call by Federal
Environment Minister Tony
Burke to "see sense" and scrap
the trial, which allows a maxi-
mum of 400 cows in six sites.
"We're talking about a
national park that is there
for the preservation of native
species," Mr Burke told Federal
"A national park is not a place
to find a home for cattle."
The issue is legally complex,
with the federal government
responsible for the preserva-
tion of the heritage values of
the park, while the state is
responsible for protecting the
park from fire.
The state government argues
that grazing helps prevent the
spread of wildfire and says the
trial has been established to
gather scientific data about the
effects of the cattle.
However, the trial has
started without establishing
pre-grazing data sites --- a basic
requirement of any meaningful
scientific trial. A proposal to
place tracking collars on the
cattle to monitor their move-
ments has not been initiated.
The move to reintroduce the
cattle was one of the first acts of
the Coalition after its election
in November, fulfilling an elec-
tion promise to do so. Grazing
was halted by the Bracks Labor
government in 2003.
The former government's ban
on grazing drew on more than 50
years of research that confirmed
grazing of the high country had
no significant impact on the
frequency, intensity or reduc-
tion of fire. A peer-reviewed
CSIRO study in 2006 found there
was no scientific evidence that
cattle grazing lessened the risk
Protection of the environ-
ment heritage of the park was
behind the ban on grazing.
However, the cattlemen and
their supporters argue that
their use of the park is a
cultural heritage that should
not be overshadowed by envi-
Minister Ryan Smith said in a
statement last week that the six
cattle grazing sites had been
selected to avoid significant
environmental impacts. "We
have not received any advice
we are contravening federal
law," Mr Smith said. "In fact,
this trial is consistent with the
state government's legislated
Melbourne Greens' MP Adam
Bandt says the Victorian gov-
ernment committed an act of
environmental vandalism when
it allowed the cattle back.
He has released details of a
private member's bill to abolish
grazing in the park.
He said the Environment
Protection and Biodiversity
Conservation (Abolition of
Alpine Grazing) Bill will deem
the federal environment min-
ister to have rejected alpine
grazing in the park, forcing
the Victorian government to
remove the cattle.
Mr Bandt said the cattle were
allowed back into the fragile
alpine country for political
reasons and the scientific jus-
tification was "concocted".
