National Threatened Species Day on 7 September is our annual reminder to spotlight native plants, animals and ecosystems that are under threat, reflect on how we can protect them in the future and remember the plants and animals we’ve lost to the extinction crisis. Have a look at the NSW Government’s latest Saving Our Species newsletter published today which focuses on our national threatened species and what is being done to look after them.

Here is an article from the Atlas of Life in the Coastal Wilderness with beautiful photos of pollinators visiting the flowers of one of our region’s threatened species, the Merimbula Star Hair.
