The South-West Botanical Province of Western Australia is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. The region earned this appellation through its high species diversity, its high level of endemism and the high level of threat to these values (Myers et al., 2000). The area is known to have over 5000 plant species, of which over 4000 are endemic and it has a diverse range of vertebrate and invertebrate fauna that are found nowhere else(Myers et al., 2000). We have a globally significant area under numerous pressures and threats. The Avon Natural Resource Management Region (ANRMR) is centred on the central/southern Wheatbelt and straddles this globally significant area.
