Panel 1: The Diversity of Plants and Animals in the Volcanic Plains

Wildflower grasslands are one of the world’s most endangered ecosystems. These grasslands stretch from Melbourne, across most of southern Victoria to the South Australian border. Since European settlement much of the landscape has been altered, while some of the plants and animals have been driven to extinction. Many people and organisations are making efforts to conserve and protect these species.
