Birds and Vascular Plants
Naturalist Gus Yaki has been doing birding surveys on the first day of every month year round from Stanley Park to Glenmore Dam for the past 15 years. His research reveals that "quite a number of once common species have totally disappeared in that time."
Most of the plants are escapees from neighbouring years or have been deliberately planted.
