The ANPC is working with the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria (RBGV), Friends of Grampians Gariwerd and the Australasian Native Orchid Society (Victoria Group) Inc. on this exciting project. Approximately 50 endangered Caladenia audasii seedlings are now growing at the Orchid Conservation shadehouse thanks to our Victorian Government Biodiversity On-ground Action grant. More seed will be sown this spring. They will be reintroduced back into their native habitat in 2020. Pollinator baiting is currently underway. There are only 5 known plants left in the wild! https://anpc.asn.au/audas_spider-orchid
The 2019 ANPC calendar features 12 threatened plants from the ACT region promoted by the 12th Australasian Plant Conservation Conference to highlight some of the many endangered plants in and around the territory. All but one are listed as vulnerable, endangered or critically endangered at the national level. The profits from the sale of this calendar will be directed towards ANPC projects aiming to raise community awareness of threatened plant species and endangered ecological communities throughout Australia. $15 each (+ postage and handling) and only $10 for ANPC members!
