What are our Aims?

How do we achieve them?

Why do we do this?

The aims of the Stanthorpe Rare Wildflower Consortium are to:

  1. Provide advice and information on wildflower conservation.

  2. Develop an increased awareness of the threats to endangered wildflower species. 

  3. Provide landowners with methods to better manage wildflower ecosystems.

We achieve these aims by:

  • Engaging stakeholder groups who have an interest in, or are affected by, projects we undertake.

  • Having a presence at major community events e.g. Stanthorpe Show, Gardenfest.

  • Hosting or participating in workshops, field days, presentations on subjects relevant to our cause eg fire, weeds, identification.

  • Seeking funding through affiliated groups to undertake surveys and projects relevant to our cause.

  • Producing publications with information for the general public and private landholders who want to protect wildflower habitats.

We do this because:

  • We have spectacular wildflower displays emerging in springtime on the Granite Belt.

  • These displays include over 800 species of flowering plants.

  • Almost 50 species are listed in the Nature Conservation Act as endangered, vulnerable or rare species.

  • Many of these plants are endemic to the Granite Belt, that is, they are confined to certain locations, and do not occur naturally anywhere else in the world.
