Our members assist threatened plant species conservation and recovery throughout the State in close cooperation with the Threatened Species Unit specialists from the Biodiversity Conservation Branch (DPIW). Our main activities are searching for and monitoring threatened plant populations. We also do some priority weeding and management of key sites, especially where we have successfully applied for funding.

Who we are

This group was developed, using a grant to WILDCARE Inc from the Threatened Species Network (TSN) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to support threatened plant conservation and recovery projects, in cooperation with the Threatened Species Section of the Biodiversity Conservatrion Branch of DPIWE. Threatened Plant Tasmania has been developed with the funding assistance of the WWF Threatened Species Network. Catriona Scott and Jenny Calder were employed with this funding to develop the group and its relationship with the Threatened Species Unit of DPIPWE and others involved in plant conservation. Thank you Catriona and Jenny for your efforts!
