What is Happening Now

With the removal of sheep grazing from the Reserve and the on-going control of feral animals (goats, foxes & cats) environmental pressure on habitat has been reduced, which is aiding in the recovery of native wildlife.  A special effort is being made around the Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby colony areas.  Low impact facilities are being established for members of the Association and relevant interest groups to carry out necessary activities, including flora and fauna recording and monitoring as well as research associated with the long-term conservation of the area for future generations.  A program of revegetation of selected mallee and mulga areas has also commenced.

The Bunker Block Project Public Fund has been established for the specific purpose of supporting the Associationís environmental objectives.  Some of these are the continued protection and growth in numbers of the Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby; closing man-made watering points to deter artificial levels of herbivores (both feral and native); restoration and revegetation of degraded land using locally sourced seed; maintaining boundary fences to prevent influx of sheep or goats and continued monitoring of various other native fauna and flora species to ensure long term ecological balance.
