Conservation of Our Threatened Species
Conservation is possibly the most important part of the Australian Plants Society. We are actively involved in several conservation initiatives. In one project we are managing a site that has the only remaining significant population of a rare and endangered plant. At another site, we are returning some coastal habitat to what it was a hundred years ago, and that includes the mangrove forests. We are the only organisation to tackle the massive weed infestation at a site near Cape Jervis, and restore that area to its original condition. All these projects include weed eradication, seed collection, direct seeding, tubestock growing, revegetation work, survey work and much, much more. For those that are involved, it can be extremely rewarding.
