In the light of the multiple functions that national parks are expected to fulfil, their capacity to serve as secure guardians of biodiversity is compromised. We note thatnon-reserved land may be able to significantly supplement and enhance the role of parkssystems. We present a brief case-study of the Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria, which demonstrates that substantial abundance and diversity of mammals persist in an area in whichthere are no national parks but widespread forest remnants on both private and public land. We identify some of the factors which confer high conservation value on such areas as the Strathbogie Ranges.
