The ANPC is working with Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria,Friends of Grampians Gariwerd – FOGGS and Australasian Native Orchid Society – Victorian Group to save the threatened Caladenia audasii from extinction, thanks to funding from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. Caladenia audasii has fewer than 8 plants left in the wild. So far, an exclusion fence has been constructed at one site to protect newly discovered plants from grazing, seed has been collected and sown for propagation, and plant surveys and pollinator baiting have been undertaken. In spring 2019 there will be more pollinator baiting and surveys for any new plants, before re-introducing 50 seedlings in winter 2020. Read more.
