Ten minutes drive from York House and surrounded by a sea of suburbia, the KKNR is a life raft for a vast number of species, many rare and endangered. One of these, Brachysteima natalense, is a plant believed extinct except for the KKNR last small population. The position of many species on the raft is fragile, for as habitat shrink and become more isolated, so the long-term viability of small populations is brought into question.
