How can we save this forest?
This Rainforest now living at Cradle Mountain is one of the rarest forests and significant places to visit. It is an ancient Gondwana rainforest, which has existed more than for 65,000 years.
The Canopy is mainly King Billy Pine, Celerty Top Pine and Myrtle.
The floor of the forest is tangled with a carpet of decaying life. The roots here are covered with moss , likens and algea and in summer it has a splendid show of pink heath and blooms of flowering miniture plant life ready to sporn.
The lush green of this forest is a great sorce of healing, but lately it has been as dry as a bone and suffering from the effects of climate change. How can we protect these ancient places as they are so significant to the world and the ancestors of all trees on earth.
