Patsy Nagle – models of plant conservation
A practical model involves both a structured and contextual framework (of legislation, established priorities, and projects at international, national, state and local govt levels) as well as ‘uncodified expertise’ from knowledgeable, engaged, connected and passionate community volunteers (and non-govt agencies). This delivers a diverse, interesting, relevant and nuanced set of on-ground action on both public & private land.
