This overall problem is not new. In 2014 Quest reported on the network of tracks, including trees cut down and makeshift ramps, in the conservation zone of the reserve.

As stated on the BCC website “The variety of habitats within this bushland makes it a very important refuge for a diversity of wildlife.”
