New hope for rare Westringia
The Snowy River Westringia (Westringia cremnophila), last seen in the wild in 2002, has been found again. They only occur on sheer cliffs along a short stretch of the Snowy River requiring white-water rafts to access. The relatively high number of plants found on this expedition (only four were seen in 2002) was a good sign for the survival of the species, but cuttings were also taken for propagation at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.
