Plunkett Mallee (Eucalyptus curtisii)
South East Queensland is a biodiversity hotspot for native plants, with some species found nowhere else on earth. Among the dry sandstone ridges around Logan and Ipswich cities, some plants have evolved special adaptations to survive the tough conditions out in the sun. But while they have evolved into a plethora of different shapes and sizes to suit the trials of life, they have suffered from the impacts of land clearing and infrastructure development. Thanks to a new regional project, however, there is hope. This is the story of the Plunkett Mallee.
Back from the Brink is bringing you a brand new season of discovery! This is a story of how an army of volunteers, ecologists, developers, prisoners, teachers and students from across Logan and Ipswich are rallying together to save a species from extinction.
