We need your help to promote and improve the conservation of Australia’s many threatened native plants. Donate to the ANPC today and support our plant conservation networks, events and projects. Donations of $2 or more to the ANPC are tax-deductible.
The ANPC brings together plant conservationists from all walks of life to inform and inspire each other in our efforts to save Australia’s plants, especially those threatened with extinction. We do this through holding conferences, workshops and webinars, as well as publishing plant conservation guidelines, research in our quarterly journal Australasian Plant Conservation, a monthly e-newsletter, website resources, YouTube channel and stories on social media.
We are the national plant conservation network that links people, research and action through sharing information
In a survey at our 13th Australasian Plant Conservation Conference (APCC13), 50 out of 61 participants listed information sharing as a high priority. Other feedback reinforced the need for our events. “Networking with other practitioners was very important to me. I made some good contacts to follow up on and got a better understanding of the depth of research going on and the effort being put in to save endangered species” (APCC13 attendee).
Your donation will help us with all this and more!
Our priority projects for 2023 are:
- Collaborating on the Australasian Myrtle Rust Conference Sydney, 21-23 June 2023, and producing a report on the outcomes and achievements including any new or emerging priority research areas.
