The Dandenong ranges is the closest national park to urban areas. This is a great thing for us. But not so great for the enviorment. The ranges being so close to the city creates many problems, such as air pollution from cars, busses and trucks, unaware drivers can kill animals and with the pollution it can weaken trees and not leave any food for the animals. The Dandenong ranges has had a problem with inhabiting wild animals because the park is so close to urban areas but this problem has been resolved.
