Draft Amendment for KI Wilderness Trail

on .

Amendments to the existing Management Plans for Flinders Chase National Park, Kelly Hill Conservation Park, Ravine des Casoars and Cape Bouguer Wilderness Protection Areas are proposed to allow for the development of the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail (KIWT). The ecological impact of the increased trail network and infrastructure developments associated with the KIWT is of serious concern to NCSSA as is the effect these developments will have on the natural assets within parks that the trail traverses. Our submission recommended the Department provide adequate funding and resources to establish long-term and rigorous monitoring programs to evaluate the ecological impacts and sustainability of this development.
