Australia | Endangered plant rebounds at Macquarie Island WHS 6 years after feral rabbit extirpation

A critically-endangered herb once thought extinct on sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island has been found growing at a new location as the world-heritage site continues its rabbit-free recovery. 


The remote island was declared free of pests in 2014, following a seven-year feral animal eradication project.
