Cactus Sites Update

Posted on: Friday, 16 June 2017 at 10:29:49 AM

An impressive 38 locations have been found of Velvet Pear Cactus, most of these confined to the Goomalling townsite. A huge thanks to all members of the public for your reports, keep them coming in. A Woohoo to Mal Chester for her find of 10 seedlings in a patch of bush near the Calingiri turnoff, (photo at left of a seedling cactus 10cm tall, taped for ease of locating again) her eagle eyes are impressive!! Once seeding has been completed, my attention will turn to rural properties, where the potential is for most damage to occur. (wool contamination, loss of productive land). Please call me with your sightings on 0428100910, or email: cactus@goomalling.wa.gov.au.      Jean Walker
