Our Habitats

Different species play key roles in the ecological processes and vital biodiversity our wildlife rely on for their survival. Extinction of species can have unforeseen effects with widespread consequences for ecosystems, native wildlife and for people. Ecosystems that depend on species on the brink of extinction also begin to decline.

Australia's wild animals are far outnumbered by its diversity of plants. There are over 18,000 species of flowering plants alone in Australia. Including other types of plants such as conifers, ferns, mosses and plant algae, Australia is home to over 21,000 species. The numbers given here are only for species identified so far.

One of our Plant a Tree for Me! projects is focused on conserving biodiversity and eradicating invasive weeds, for the Northern Quoll. By controlling the spread of stinking passionflower in Millstream Chichester National Park in WA, Parks and Wildlife staff in partnership with the Ngurrawaana Ranger Team are protecting the breeding grounds of the Olive Python and the habitat and food sources of the Northern Quoll.

From the ficus genus to snappy gums this area is an oasis for our wildlife in the middle of a desert and it needs your support.

Acacia

LEARN MORE

Acacia (Wattle)

Acacia, known commonly as acacia or wattle, is a genus of shrubs and trees. The majority of Australian Acacias are not thorny. All species are pod-bearing, with sap and leaves often bearing large amounts of tannins and condensed tannins that historically found use as pharmaceuticals and preservatives. Acacias in Australia probably evolved their fire resistance about 20 million years ago when fossilised charcoal deposits show a large incre.. READ MORE


Allocasurina

LEARN MORE

Allocasurina

Allocasuarina are trees endemic to Australia, occurring primarily in the south. Allocasuarina trees are notable for their long, segmented branchlets that function as leaves. Formally termed cladodes, these branchlets somewhat resemble pine needles, although sheoaks are actually flowering plants. The leaves are reduced to minute scales encircling each joint. Fallen cladodes form a dense, soft mat beneath sheoaks, preventing the development.. READ MORE

Baeckea is a genus of flowering plants of about 75 species, of which 70 are endemic to Australia. Baeckea is widespread along the coast and tablelands of south-eastern Australia. Two species occur in Western Australia, both in the cool, high-rainfall areas near Albany, in heathy swamps. Greatest species diversity is reached on the Central Coast and Central Tablelands of New South Wales. Two species (B. gunniana and B. utilis) extend to alpine.. READ MORE

Eucalypts (Gum Trees)

Their range extends from sub-alpine areas to wet coastal forests, temperate woodlands and the arid inland. In fact, the only major environment where eucalypts are absent is probably rainforest. Eucalypts are a defining feature of Australia. They are the dominant tree of the developed areas of the country, although only sparsely represented in the driest regions. There are over 800 species which have adapted to nearly every environment.. READ MORE

Ficusis a genus of about 850 species of woodytrees, shrubs, vines, epiphytes and hemiepiphytes. The fruit of most species are edible though they are usually of only local economic importance or eaten as bushfood. They are extremely important food resources for wildlife and of considerable cultural importance throughout the tropics, both as objects of worship and for their many practical uses. As a group figs are relatively easy to recogn.. READ MORE
