Mukinbudin Wildflowers Are Here – 2018

Mukinbudin local nature enthusiast¬†ūüź¶and amateur photographer ūüď∑ Ursina Gringer¬†has been out and about looking for¬†wildflowers¬†around Mukinbudin in the Wheatbelt Way.¬†She found quite a few and the sunset was stunning!

If you look you will find them! As the weather warms up their will be more to see in coming weeks.

The Wheatbelt Way is located in the South West Biodiversity Hotspot and is one of only 34 biodiversity hotspots in the world and one of two in Australia.

This region as one of the most ecologically significant areas in the world due to the high number of rare and endangered species found here. Almost half of the 8,000 plant species in this region are not found anywhere else in the world. Some of the reason for this huge biodiversity is that the southwest region has been isolated for millions of years by the vast surrounding central deserts and oceans.
