There is a significant population of the endangered Emu Mountain She-Oak (Allocasuarina emuina) on site. Approximately 5.3 ha of core habitat for the species would be impacted by the project. The site also contains important foraging habitat for the vulnerable Grey-headed Flying Fox (Pteropus poliocephalus) - approximately 41.8 ha would be impacted by the project. The site also contains habitat that is suitable to the vulnerable Wallum Sedgefrog (Litoria olongburensis) and the vulnerable ground parrot (Pezoporus wallicus). Both species are known to occur on the site.
