Checkout this pic of the newly restored area thanks to last winter’s big plantout effort. Spinifex is taking off!
We now know of several self-seeded Spinifex plants on Sumner beach and this is the first time this has happened since Spinifex became extinct in the area. The seed almost certainly came from the previously restored area and shows that Spinifex is really making a comeback and could be soon capable of look after itself! This is important as cycles of beach erosion will often wipe out some parts of the Spinifex habitat, which then naturally re-establish from healthy plants in neighbouring areas.
