Pink Underwing moth and Small Leaved Tamarind; Creating a safe haven for the highly endangered through restoring cleared land back to rainforest.
Existing efforts by the landholder has seen a remarkable recovery from waterways and mountain sides clogged entirely with lantana, transition excellent regenerating rainforest. An incredible recent discovery on the property has sparked ReForest Now to engage and assist, as the Pink Underwing Moth was discovered there, having hypothetically flown from the Richmond Ranges 30 kilometres away, over the great escarpments of the Wollumbin Caldera. This species is recognised as endangered by NSW, QLD and federal government. Additionally, the site has been selected as the home to the most genetically diverse collection of the endangered (by NSW, QLD and gov) Small Leaved Tamarind trees.
