Our seed collectors undertook extensive field work throughout 2016-2017 with collections secured across the country from each state and territory as well as from our external territories of Norfolk Island and Christmas Island. Our dedicated seed collectors and their invaluable volunteers scour the landscape for their next target species. This year’s Annual Report provides some of the highlights from twelve months of collecting in every state and territory and can be downloaded from our website at
