Searching for the most useful species for restoration

The ANPC is working with the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Domain Trust (RBGDT) to identify about 200 plant species believed to be the most useful in restoration projects around NSW. This information will be used in the development of a broader RBGDT project - Restore and Renew NSW. The ANPC is also collating a list of provenance and fitness guidelines for restoration to guide decision making on the plant material used by restoration practitioners in New South Wales.

The first stage of the project is an online survey aimed at those working on native vegetation restoration projects in NSW including restoration practitioners, bush regenerators, community volunteers, growers, seed collectors, regulators, licensors and researchers. Survey respondents will go in a draw to win a one-year individual or community group membership to the ANPC valued at up to $105.

ANPC Project Manager Tricia Hogbin said she was delighted with the quick response to their latest project.

“We had over 30 responses in the first week and this is a very good start,” Tricia said.

The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ANPC2013 and closes Friday, 29 November 2013.
