The reserves protect a range of threatened species including spotted-tailed quoll, Booroolong frog, powerful owl, scarlet robin, varied sittella, Yass daisy, aromatic peppercress, and the critically endangered White Box – Yellow Box – Blakely's Red Gum Grassy Woodland ecological community. The reserves contain some of the only substantial vegetated areas remaining in the region which has been extensively cleared for agriculture and in which much of the remaining vegetation occurs in very small patches or as scattered trees.

This is the first plan of management for these reserves.
