Plants can’t get up and run from a fire or move into the shade if it gets too hot (most of the time they ARE in the shade!). They just have to come up with clever tricks (adaptations) that will help them survive the environment they are growing in, PLUS survive all the other weather Australia throws at them, like drought, floods, cyclones and heat waves! Australia’s environments have led to some pretty special plants that exist nowhere else in the world. Because of this, we have decided to hold a Plant Adaptation Awards Night!! The award categories include the Water Saving Award, Fire Proof Award, Sun Catcher Award and the Epic Survivor Award.
The nominations are in, the judges have chosen and it’s time to announce the Plant Adaptation Award Winners!
Let the ceremony begin!
