Toby, of ANBG, will provide an introduction to the species, his involvement in ex-situ conservation initiatives, and an overview of my BGANZ-funded trip to visit the species in the wild in 2022. Following on will be a guided tour to look at the ex-situ conservation planting of M. jansenii in the Rainforest Gully


Toby Golson has been the horticulturalist with responsibility for the rainforest living collection at ANBG since 2000. He also took on responsibility for coordination of the wider Living Collection from 2018-20 during which time the collaborations enabling ANBG’s role in the wider conservation of M. jansenii were nurtured.
