Feather-leaved Banksia of WA

  • YEAR: 2016
  • STATE: Western Australia
  • FOCUS AREAS: Healing our Land/Saving Species/SDG 15: Life on Land

Thanks to your support, the critically endangered Feather-leaved Banksia Banksia brownii will receive much needed conservation attention. Banksias don’t live forever, they get old and susceptible to disease. They need fire to release seeds and recruit new plants. This population of Feather-leaved Banksia is in major decline due to a lack of fire, and a regeneration burn is needed to save it. Post-fire, the local community can help monitor the recovery of this plant. Before, this critically endangered plant was on the way out. Now, it can rise from the ashes.

FNPW support

This project was funded through generous donations from FNPW supporters across Australia and beyond.
