In 2020, Public Fund donations are being allocated towards planning and seeking funds for native plant conservation workshops, such as Threatened Plant Translocation workshops, presentations and other initiatives (such as videos and online materials) following the 2019/20 bushfires. Make a tax-deductible donation today and help us promote and improve plant conservation in Australia during this difficult time.
