A modern-day Noah’s ark – conserving WA's threatened plants (SOLD OUT)
AboutThe south-west of Western Australia is renowned for its rich plant diversity. This diversity, combined with the loss of a large proportion of the original vegetation, has led to this area being recognised internationally as a Biodiversity Hotspot. The Western Australian Seed Centre, Kensington, stands on the frontline in the fight against plant extinction. Go on a tour of this critically-important seed bank at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions to discover how biologists collect seeds of some of Western Australia’s most threatened plant species, prepare them for storage and – most importantly – retrieve stored seeds and get them ready for replanting back in the wild.
Registration is free but essential as numbers are limited.
