Project Summary:
The last surviving fragment of black cabbage tree woodland is declining rapidly. We aim to stabilize it and restore a further hectare, enhancing populations of several very rare endemic ferns and invertebrates. A captive breeding programme will safeguard the last few spiky yellow woodlice. Detailed biodiversity surveys will inform longer-term management.
