The Wildlife and Native Plants Study Group is one of over 20 such Groups whose aims are to further knowledge about the cultivation, propagation and conservation of specific Australian plants. The Wildlife and Native Plants Study Group exists exists to promote the study or special interest in Australian flora and fauna. Members of the Group are mainly keen amateurs with no formal horticultural or botanical knowledge, although a number of professionals in those fields also participate. As in all study groups, the members' work is mainly carried out in their own homes and gardens and in their own spare time.
The Group publishes a regular newsletter each quarter covering issues relating to the interaction of Australian wildlife and Australian flora. Topics covered are wide ranging and may include:
