Behind the Scenes at PlantBank

Over 200 years, Australia has lost roughly one third of its rainforests. Join Dr Cathy Offord, Principal Research Scientist at the Australian PlantBank, to learn about their ongoing Rainforest Conservation Project and the importance of their work, seed-banking, thawing and re-growing rare and vulnerable species. The findings from the Rainforest Conservation Project will provide a global solution to the conservation of these amazing rainforest plants. Go behind-the-scenes and get close to the science, where you will get to see areas of PlantBank never seen by the general public.
