Rosewood Mistletoe in the Alstonville area
The Rosy Futures project aims to mitigate threats and support climate change adaptation of Rosewood Mistletoe in Lowland Subtropical Rainforest at Alstonville. The project is currently underway, and on-ground works are being carried out.
To begin with, a baseline ecological survey is being conducted to determine the presence or absence of Rosewood Mistletoe in areas of potential habitat. This survey will assess various factors such as available habitat, population size, health of individuals, host and habitat, and species of host.
To protect the existing host trees and establish potential new habitat, bush regeneration activities will be carried out across the project area. These activities will help to create suitable conditions for the growth and proliferation of the Rosewood Mistletoe.
