WANTED: Images of Australian threatened flora and communities
The slide show will be launched online 18 May 2013 as part of Fascination of Plants Day.
Images can be habitat shots, close-ups, or of someone doing something (e.g. seed collecting, monitoring or planting). The slide show will be similar in style to one we released last year for Threatened Species Day.
Preference will be given to critically endangered and endangered entities.
Images need to be original high resolution and be accompanied by information (less than 150 words) on the species or community pictured, status, threats to its survival, and what is being done to conserve it.
Photographer credits will be included so please include photographer name.
Please email images and information to projects (at) anpc.asn.au by 5pm Wed 8th May.
We'll upload the final slide show to the ANPC website by Wed 15th May ready to promote via social media on World Fascination of Plants Day 18 May.
Here's a list of all Australian World Fascination of Plants Day events.
