About the plan
The Wrinkled Cassinia Cassinia rugata is listed as Vulnerable under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and Threatened under the Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988. The species is endemic to a small area in southwestern Victoria, where there are approximately 40 plants known in six wild populations. Major threats to populations include weed invasion, grazing and lack of regeneration, road widening and altered fire regimes.
This national Recovery Plan for C. rugata details the species' distribution and biology, conservation status, threats, and recovery objectives and actions necessary to ensure its longterm survival.
