Establish a secure network of ex-situ collections to conserve climate threatened tropical mountain plants.


All of our target species are restricted to the mountains of Queensland's Wet Tropics. Despite being securely protected in National Parks, climate change is predicted to eliminate most suitable habitat for these plants within a hundred years.
