The fascinating world of carnivorous plants – at the DRB

Jorgensen Park Pavilion, Jorgensen Park Pavilion, end of Crescent Rd
Kalamunda, WA 6076 Australia

Carnivorous plants capture and digest prey to gain nutrition from them, but how hungry are they? Western Australia hosts the world's greatest diversity of carnivorous plants, including sundews, bladderworts, rainbow plants, the endemic Albany pitcher plant, and the rare aquatic waterwheel plant. This is your opportunity to learn all about them from Laura Skates, especially the ones we will find in the Perth Hills and the variety of methods they use to trap their prey. Of course, you'll also find out just how hungry they are and where they get their nutrients from! You'll never look at sundews or other carnivorous plants in them in the same way again!
