Monaro golden daisy
Vulnerable: Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016, Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999
The Monaro golden daisy is found in scattered populations on the Monaro plains, and in low sub-alpine plains of Kosciuszko National Park.
The tufted perennial herb is one of many nationally listed threatened species hanging on in tiny remnants of native grassland remnants that were once extensive across the Monaro Tablelands and into the Snowy Mountains.
- Highly susceptible to grazing, now living in only a small number of populations on roadsides, un-grazed reserves and very lightly grazed pastures on private lands.
- Habitat loss and degradation from weed invasion, feral grazers, agriculture and development.
