Supporting climate change adaptation of Rosewood Mistletoe in Lowland Subtropical Rainforest at Alstonville

Rosy Futures is dedicated to mitigating threats and supporting climate change adaptation of Rosewood Mistletoe in the captivating Lowland Subtropical Rainforest of Alstonville. Currently, we are actively engaged in on-ground works to preserve and enhance the habitat of this unique species.

Baseline Ecological Survey: Assessing Rosewood Mistletoe Habitat

To ensure a comprehensive understanding of the species’ distribution, we have initiated a baseline ecological survey. This survey aims to determine the presence or absence of Rosewood Mistletoe in areas with potential habitat. Our assessment covers essential factors, including available habitat, population size, individual health, host tree species, and the overall habitat condition.

Protecting Host Trees and Establishing New Habitat: Bush Regeneration Activities

A crucial aspect of our project is the protection of existing host trees and the creation of new habitat for Rosewood Mistletoe. Through dedicated bush regeneration activities, we are actively working across the project area to establish suitable conditions that foster the growth and proliferation of this valuable species. By preserving and rehabilitating their habitat, we aim to support the long-term survival of Rosewood Mistletoe populations.

Cultural Sensitivity and Collaboration with Nyangbul People

At Rosy Futures, we recognize the cultural significance of the landscape in which we operate. We are committed to maintaining a respectful relationship with the Nyangbul people, the Traditional Owners of the Country. By working closely with them, we ensure that our actions align with their values and aspirations, fostering a harmonious and inclusive approach to conservation.
