|The ANPC would like to thank Dr Heidi Zimmer for her work over the last five years as editor of our bulletin, Australasian Plant Conservation. Heidi has done an incredible job collating, reviewing and chasing up articles for APC. We thank her for her energy and attention to detail in the role. We would also like to welcome Dr Nathan Emery as the new editor. Nathan is currently taking submissions for articles to be featured in the autumn edition of APC. The deadline for submissions is 1 February 2023, more information on how to submit can be found here.|
|Filming continued for our ‘Safe Custody for Native Guava’ project when our production team visited The Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan recently. Peek behind the scenes as they filmed Veronica Viler preparing cuttings in the nursery, Stephanie Chen in the DNA extraction lab and the living collection of Native Guava at the ABGMA nursery. We look forward to sharing the video in early 2023! This project is supported by funding from the Australian Government. Image by Amelia Martyn Yenson|
|A new film released this month shares first-hand stories on myrtle rust from indigenous rangers, scientists and landowners. Learn how our precious species and landscapes are under threat and the conservation actions we can take to save them. Watch it here.
This film was a collaborative project led by Queensland Agriculture with support from the Australian Network for Plant Conservation, San Diego Zoo, NSW Government, Butchulla Aboriginal Corporation, and the Plant Biosecurity Science Foundation.
