SPECIES:
Macadamia jansenii — Bulburin Macadamia Nut

CLASSIFICATION:
Endangered

This species of macadamia was only officially discovered in 1992. There are 4 species of Bulberin Macadamia Nut; all of which, are listed on the EPBC. The situation has now become dire for the Bulburin Nut tree and only 90 trees still remain in the wild. FAME is proud to be partnering with the Macadamia Conservation Trust to help build insurance populations before time runs out for this delicate macadamia species.

The Bulberin Nut is part of FAME’s 2019 Top Ten Endangered Species action plan.
