Description

Examples of several hundred (estimated) seedlings that have appeared from seed bank. These plants are being closely monitored and managed two-weekly by the Department of Conservation. Earlier this year only one plant remained of this endemic species - a very serious situation. This species is by no means secure but these seedlings provide some hope for the future.
