OEH is using drones to identify endangered and invasive plant species and has already identified two endangered plant species in the state’s Upper Hunter region! @OEH_media http://ow.ly/6Qkd30lnhfj

Researchers believe that dingo culling programs have led to a boom in feral cat and red fox populations. This has decimated the numbers of many of the small desert rodent & marsupial species, so that shrubs have been able to grow in much greater abundance. http://ow.ly/BxEs30llxwE

Take a stand against extinction! On 10 September, on the lawns of Parliament house, over 2000 individuals will take a visible public stand against extinction on the lawns of Parliament House - holding up the names of the 2000 animals, plants and ecosystems currently listed as threatened in Australia. You can play a part by holding up the placards, bringing along pictures and small banners, and standing for a particular animal, plant or ecosystem that you care about.
The vision of the Places You Love Alliance is to push for stronger nature protection laws and to exercise social and political power to reverse Australia's extinction crisis. http://ow.ly/OJdX30lkAAP

Myrtle Rust Draft Action Plan – public comment closes 31st August.
Since its arrival in 2010, the Myrtle Rust pathogen Austropuccinia psidii has established along Australia’s east coast, in the Northern Territory, and marginally in Victoria and Tasmania. 358 Australian native plant species are known hosts. About 45 are known or suspected to be severely affected or at risk in the wild. Two documents have been released:
• ‘Myrtle Rust reviewed: the impacts of the invasive pathogen Austropuccinia psidii on the Australian environment’
• ‘Myrtle Rust in Australia – a draft Action Plan’.
The intent of the plan is to provide a framework for a nationally coordinated and adequately resourced environmental response to Myrtle Rust. The intent of the Review of impacts is to provide the evidentiary basis for the proposed actions, and to show their urgency. http://ow.ly/ZAVD30ljrk9

'We are on the cusp of a new frontier with reintroducing threatened plant species to the wild' says ANPC committee member Dr Cathy Offord. An insurance population of 191 Wollomi pines planted six years ago in an undisclosed location is producing fertilised seeds for the first time. ANPC editor Heidi Zimmer has been tracking the trees' progress since they were planted as juveniles. http://ow.ly/ifpI30kIFnE

Saving endangered species in the Nambucca Valley. Funding was supplied to the Nambucca Shire Council by the NSW Environmental Trust and the North Coast Local Land Services to reduce the impact of Bitou Bush and large woody weeds on an endangered population of Native Legume, the Glycine Clandestina (broad leaf form) that is only known to grow in the Themeda grass headlands just to the south of Scotts Head village.
