Your support is powerful

Our Australian rainforests are under serious threat battling three major challenges: myrtle rust, climate change, and deforestation. 

With your support, Botanic Gardens of Sydney will be able to continue the important work to save our critically endangered rainforest species from extinction.

  • $25 could help us prepare media for germination of five species
  • $50 could help us run a preliminary germination test for one species
  • $150 could help us run five DNA extractions suitable for whole genome sequencing for one species
  • $500 could help us assess the best conditions for breaking seed dormancy for one species
  • $1,000 could help us test the response of seeds to climate change for one species using a thermogradient plate


Rescue our rainforests before it's too late.

Donate before 30 June
