With 1000 kilometres of trail passing through a variety of land tenures and nine settlements, negative impacts on the Track come from a wide range of areas.
Whilst the Foundation cannot stop state development and urban sprawl, the Board works hard to raise awareness of the importance of the Bibbulmun Track as a recreational resource and tourist attraction - and negotiate the best outcomes it can to protect the length of the Track and the quality of the experience for walkers.
