Damage has been caused to ecosystems through the expansion of agriculture and cattle ranching and the close proximity to roads places the unique biodiversity under even greater pressure. The privately-owned land is under threat from professional land-grabbers and illegal occupation, requiring the Project [...]

Different technologies can become obsolete, hard drives crash, phones get lost and it happens all the time.
