Town's seed propagation contributes to global biodiversity
Did you know that the south-west of WA is one of 36 global biodiversity hotspots? These hotspots represent only 2.4% of the Earth's total land surface but are home to 60% of its species.
Did you also know that the Town of Victoria Park’s Jirdarup Bushland (part of the Kensington Bushland) contains a multitude of the endemic species that makes the south-west of WA a biodiversity hotspot?
As part of the Town’s community-led Urban Forest Strategy (UFS), we have been working to continue cultivating the seeds of endemic plants, shrubs and trees from the bushland (over 40 species listed), and encouraging them to spread beyond the bushland through planting activities.
