Because of this recent tree removal and loss of habitat for local wildlife, the small Rogers Bushland Reserve and nearby Williams Park are now vital areas for wildlife that have had to flee their bushland homes and are looking for native habitat. It is now more important than ever to ensure that the Endangered Ecosystem of the Charles and Motee Rogers Bushland reserve is preserved not only for the wildlife but for the enjoyment of the local community for future generations.
