Recent research indicates that the Rusa deer population has increased to such an extent in Royal National Park that it is having significant negative impacts on native flora and fauna, especially vegetation communities currently under threat, such as littoral rainforest and coastal heathland. The management of deer to minimise negative impacts on the biodiversity values of Royal National Park and other nearby reserves is a priority management responsibility of the NPWS to ensure the ecological sustainability of these conservation areas.
