Myrtle Rust disease driving native plant species to extinction

Myrtle Rust has been steadily spreading north and south from its original illegal entry point into Australia in the Gosford area. It's already causing the steep decline of a number of Australian native plant species, at least four of which are now approaching extinction after only a few years of exposure. The beginnings of ecosystem-level decline are starting to become apparent in rainforest, coastal heathland, and some Melaleuca wetland communities.

A draft Action Plan to guide a coordinated national environmental response to Myrtle Rust is now open for public feedback until 31 August 2018.

Please make your concerns heard! Let's apply all the public pressure we can to ensure commitment from Government, businesses and environmental organisations, to protect our native biodiversity. Click below for the details and links.
