Since its very beginning in 1958, the Wildflower Society of Western Australia (Inc) has had a long and involved commitment to the conservation of Western Australia’s native flora and bushland. Such commitment is emphasised and included in the Society’s objects as outlined in its Constitution:
(a) To encourage the conservation and preservation of Western Australian flora by, among other things, supporting efforts to strengthen laws and regulations for the conservation of Western Australian flora, encouraging enforcement of laws and regulations and making submissions on the preservation of Western Australian flora to government and other organisations.
(b) To raise public awareness about the value of, and need to conserve, bushland.
This strong commitment has been demonstrated with the formation of a Conservation Sub-Committee at the end of 1978 and it has been working on conservation matters ever since. The sub-committee’s role and duties can be found here.
