Greeting card 10 x 15cm, blank inside with white envelope
Text on reverse of card reads:
Small Purple-pea (Swainsona recta) is an endangered plant of Grassy Woodlands, and is one of 30 plant species targeted for recovery under Commonwealth Threatened Species Recovery Plans. Small Purple-pea was once relatively widespread in south-eastern Australia, however populations, both in number and size, are believed to have greatly reduced, with populations only persisting in patches of remnant habitat which have had, by chance, a favourable management and land use history.
Wandiyali Restoration Trust is a special purpose not-for-profit trust and registered charity. The Trust manages the 400 hectare Wandiyali~Environa Wildlife Sanctuary, giving protection in perpetuity to Endangered Ecological Community (EEC) Box Gum Grassy Woodland, including a population of Swainsona recta, and nearly 4km of the serpentine gorges of Jerrabomberra Creek.
