Keran is a horticulturist (WA; 1984) whose main focus is to assist with the tissue culture maintenance and cryopreservation of the Declared Rare Flora research collection. The horticultural needs are then optimised for ongoing reintroduction and translocation programs. Several species have been successfully returned to their origins e.g. Grevillea scapigera and Symonanthus bancroftii.
