Orange and mouse-ear hawkweed are highly invasive weeds in Kosciuszko National Park. Small infestations of both species in the park's sensitive alpine and sub-alpine environments, and of orange hawkweed in nearby grazing land, threaten Australian native plants, biodiversity and agriculture.
Today, we’re at risk of losing nearly 1000 of our state’s native animals and plants. That’s why the NSW Government established Saving our Species. It's the main threatened species conservation program in the state, and the biggest conservation commitment ever made in NSW.
