New populations of Australian plants found following Bush Blitz

A new location for the rare Australian species Eucalyptus magnificata has been discovered in the Oxley Wild Rivers region in NSW, thanks to the latest Bush Blitz.

The species is only found in the northern tablelands of NSW, so Tim Collins from the University of New England (who is working on the species) couldn't believe his eyes when the expedition came across the plants.

You can read the full story about this exciting discovery on the Parks Australia Blog.
