Australia | Rare specimens of recently re-discovered ancient pine species saved from bushfires

The original wild specimens of the ancient Wollemi pine tree are safe for now as fires which have burnt more than 220,000 hectares continue throughout the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales.

The National Parks Wildlife Service "has measures in place to protect the Wollemi pines from fire and they are okay," a spokesperson from the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment told the ABC.
