Threat to centre of biodiversity in Perth
The Swan Coastal Plain is known as a biodiversity hotspot, but some believe an area in Kenwick called the Greater Brixton Street Wetlands (GBSW) is the hottest spot of all. Unfortunately, it is under imminent threat from development of an industrial area. GBSW is less than 130ha but home to at least 558 native plant species, including more carnivorous plants than all of Europe. This area includes the Brixton Street Wetlands and the Alison Baird Reserve.
