Southwest Australia is an internationally recognised biodiversity hotpot. The 36 hotspots worldwide represent just 2.4% of the earth’s surface, but contain more than half of the world’s endemic plant species. They are also the areas that are most at threat of losing this diversity through habitat loss from land-use change and development. From Shark Bay in the north to Israelite Bay in the south, there are more than 1500 kinds of flora found nowhere else in the world.
