Download Kieran Tapsell’s submission to the Environment and Communications Legislation Committee NSW on “The impact of feral deer on the natural environment at the Banksia Bush Care Site, Stanwell Park, N.S.W.” 

“In the last two years [2017-2019], feral Rusa deer introduced into the Royal National Park in 1906 have killed or significantly damages 1,778 trees in 2.5 hectares of the 4.5-hectare park on the headland in the middle of Stanwell Park beach and are destroying nearly all regrowth of native species as soon as they appear. They have turned parts of this littoral rainforest into a cattle yard.”

– Kieran Tapsell, resident of Stanwell Park, NSW for 47 years and a registered volunteer with Wollongong Council at the Banksia Bush Care site.
