Thanks to your support, degraded habitat will be restored on Phillip Island due to the construction of an on-island nursery for endemic and threatened plants. A sense of ownership will grow as community members participate in running the nursery, propagating, and planting on Phillip Island. Before this, Phillip Island (6 km off Norfolk Island) was been stripped of plants and topsoil by introduced rabbits, pigs, and goats. Now that the introduced animals have been eradicated, the nursery means significant revegetation work can return the island to good habitat for threatened species, such as the Norfolk Island Green Parrot.
